Agent Ransack is a tool for finding files and information on your hard drive fast and efficiently.
When searching the contents of files Agent Ransack also displays the text found.
Users can then quickly browse the results without having to separately open each file.

So if you wanted to find a file with the letters 'teoma' in it the regular expression would simply be 'teoma'.
To find a file that begins with 'Dear' or 'Yesterday' followed at some point by 'Document' or 'Documents'
followed at some point by a number and has a '.txt'
extension the expression would be: '^(Dear|Yesterday).*Documents?.*[0-9]+.*\.txt$'
You can test your regular expressions, before searching, through an ad hoc Test->Regular expression menu option
