Table 138: syntax_­option_­type effects [tab:re.synopt]
Element
Effect(s) if set
icase
Specifies that matching of regular expressions against a character container sequence shall be performed without regard to case.
nosubs
Specifies that no sub-expressions shall be considered to be marked, so that when a regular expression is matched against a character container sequence, no sub-expression matches shall be stored in the supplied match_­results object.
optimize
Specifies that the regular expression engine should pay more attention to the speed with which regular expressions are matched, and less to the speed with which regular expression objects are constructed.
Otherwise it has no detectable effect on the program output.
collate
Specifies that character ranges of the form "[a-b]" shall be locale sensitive.
ECMAScript
Specifies that the grammar recognized by the regular expression engine shall be that used by ECMAScript in ECMA-262, as modified in [re.grammar].

basic
Specifies that the grammar recognized by the regular expression engine shall be that used by basic regular expressions in POSIX.
See also: POSIX, Base Definitions and Headers, Section 9.3
extended
Specifies that the grammar recognized by the regular expression engine shall be that used by extended regular expressions in POSIX.
See also: POSIX, Base Definitions and Headers, Section 9.4
awk
Specifies that the grammar recognized by the regular expression engine shall be that used by the utility awk in POSIX.
grep
Specifies that the grammar recognized by the regular expression engine shall be that used by the utility grep in POSIX.

multiline
Specifies that ^ shall match the beginning of a line and $ shall match the end of a line, if the ECMAScript engine is selected.
