These are the bit flags that you can use in the cflags operand when
compiling a regular expression with regcomp.
Treat the pattern as an extended regular expression, rather than as a
basic regular expression.
Ignore case when matching letters.
Don't bother storing the contents of the matches-ptr array.
Treat a newline in string as dividing string into multiple
lines, so that `$' can match before the newline and `^' can
match after. Also, don't permit `.' to match a newline, and don't
permit `[^...]' to match a newline.
Otherwise, newline acts like any other ordinary character.
