Description:

Regular expressions in FileMaker !
This is a very customisable function, read the comments to know more about it.
Virtually, any type of text parsing is possible with this function and FilterWordsByTest

UPDATE : I would now recommend the use of CustomList, by Agnès Barouh : http://www.briandunning.com/cf/747, or FilterList : http://www.briandunning.com/cf/771

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.
