Hi All,

One of the text editors I use offers one to specify a grep pattern to do a multi-file search and I am not wrapping my head around proper RE patterns to accomplish using this.

There are so many rules! 

Can anyone help with a specific example so I can try to understand better?

How would I write I want to find 'CP_', but NOT instances of 'CPLAT::CP_'?
