Regular Expression Symbols

^ The start of a string.
$ The end of a string.
. Any character.
* Zero or more occurrences of the preceding.
\ Escape used for special characters or when searching for a specific  character that has another meaning in regular expression syntax. For example, to search for the period character, you would have to use “\ .” because the period means any character in regular expression syntax.
