For example,


Sorry for being vague. To explain it in sentences, I am parsing source (.*cpp) files and I am trying to find the following:



Sounds easy, however, some source files have it like the following:



Is there anyway that I could search on two patterns?

You can build a pattern from 2 patterns using the logical OR operator.

X|Y means match either X or Y, and if you use groups...

"(some regular expression)|(another regular expression)" will match either expression.
