Dear All,


I just came to know that there are three types of flags used in Regular Expressions, ignore case (i), global (g) and multi-line (m).


I would like to know from these three, what type is used in Google Analytics Goals?


Thank you

Google analytics uses like a watered down variety of POSIX regex
More info here in the help docs about GA regex
With links to further info on the right of that page
