RegEx in news scan

Question

  How hard would it be to add a more sophisticated scan criteria to the Headline scanner.

  Pretty sure there are open source RegEx modules that can be plugged in without too much effort  , would be helpful.

Oh the infamous "how hard would it be..." question :).

The regEx filter itself is easy. But have to add UI for the filtering and also completely change the way the news stuff is displayed, and that requires time. Something we are currently lacking. We do have it on the todo list and it will be done. Just a question of when.

I never underestimate the amount of work involved, having programmed myself for 40 years.

Was thinking about the the News Alert  specifically, where the alert fires based on a simple TRUE/FALSE condition.   currently , its a string match

Adding a RegEx  engine  , optionally in place of the simple string search, which would also return a true/false , seems fairly straightforward.
