Sure hope this is going to the right place!

I am attempting to use STk to do some things I usually do in Perl. The
question I have is are some of the regex things I use in Perl available
for STk? Namely (in order of priority):

  ^ to match beginning of string
  $ to match end of string
  \s to match white space
  \b,\B,\w,\W to match word and word boundries
  {n,m} n through m occurances

I don't see them in the reference manual and don't know enough to add
them myself. Any suggestions as to where to find or how to do would be
most appreciated.

If it matters I am using both SunOS and Linux.
