Regular expressions can be used to specify entries, for example for passwords.

Here, you can enter a regular expression and check the Text field to determine whether or not the entry corresponds to the expression.

You will receive a message indicating that they match or do not match.

See here for information on regular expressions, for example.


Significantly more characters can be used in Unicode installations than in ANSI installations. For this reason, the range of values increase to 4 bytes = 256^4. Unicode characters are used in UTF-16 format in enaio®, with each character consisting of 2 bytes or 4 bytes. In Unicode there is more than the Latin alphabet. The expression [a-zA-Z] will not produce any hits for Cyrillic strings, for example. привет does not match [a-zA-Z]{6}; however, [а-я]{6} does. There is not always a numeric sorting for the letters of all alphabets, so the letter 'ё' is not included in [а-я]. There are languages, such as Egyptian hieroglyphs, that contain characters with 4 bytes. Since such characters consist of 2 x 2 bytes, the expression '.' (check for one character) does not return a hit, but '..' (check for two characters) does.
