Question on: "regular expression"

Afternoon:

How can I use the "regular expression" to find a pattern in a website scan with eValid?

Thanks

Morning LKelso:

Once you figure out the regular expression (R.E. or RE) to use, you can run your scan by setting this up in the string filter...here are some key facts...

The eValid site analysis engine can scan each page for a match to a specified string -- or even to a specified regular expression -- as described here:

and:

The regular expression (REGEX) mode and syntax is described at:

The only cautionary note here is that searching large pages for RE matches can take a long time and produce a lot of output if the RE is matched a lot of times.

The best searches focus the RE into as narrow a match as possible.
