       Regex::compile - Compile a regular expression


       Regex compile( String pattern, [REFlags] fl=createArray(1) )


       pattern The regular expression pattern to compile

       fl  A  list of Regex.REFlags (3kaya) options for the regular expression. This parameter is
       optional and defaults to the empty list.


       Compile a regular expression and return the compiled Regex.Regex (3kaya)
        This can then be re-used in several function calls for greater efficiency.

       Note that if a literal backslash needs to be matched, it must be written as "\\\\" as both
       Kaya  and PCRE will interpret one layer of backslashes. You can avoid this from Kaya 0.2.6
       onwards by using a raw string instead.

    // these two are equivalent
    test1 = quickMatch("\\\\",string);
    test2 = quickMatch(R"\\",string);
