I don't want to get into a war here but isn't this the 'debian' support list?
You are absolutely right about asking good questions and providing 
adaquate information about the issue...  but..

My point is, regular expressions are part of ALL linux, not just debian.
On the other hand, apt, dpkg ARE debian stock and trade utilities ...

Seems regex is OT and would be the one to be ignored ...
Oh well..
