[Orca-users] Using regular expressions for data

Thanks for the assistance, Kalpesh, but it is working now. I'm not sure why,
but it started. I had gone over the plot configuration and deleted the rrd
databases and all the existing html files several times already with no
luck, but the most recent time I went through that exact same routine orca
suddenly decided to evaluate the regular expressions and produced plots -
just as described in the orca man page.

I believe that you cannot use regex to pull out data from data set files as
ambiguities would arise when more then one set of data matches given regex
in terms of plotting.

Why not simply create another group with the plots you want?

If one uses "column_description first_line" in the group parameters section
of the config file, is there a way to successfully use regular expressions
in the data parameter of the plots? Currently, I have this set up and orca
is ignoring those data plots...its not even reading or loading in the
associated files which contain the data that the regular expresisons match
on, though it does is I explicitly list the exact column headers without
using regular expressions.
