 *$regml([name], N)* 

 Returns the Nth [[Scripting_Regex|regular expression]] match from [[$regex]], [[$regsub]], [[$regsubex]] or from an [[Scripting_Events|event]]. 

 _Same as [[$regbr]]._ 


 [name] - A named [[Scripting_Regex|regular expression]], if not defined result from the last [[Scripting_Regex|regular expression]] is returned. (optional) 
 N - If N = 0, number of matches, otherwise the Nth match. 


 .pos - Returns the match position in the text. 
 .group - Returns the group position (includes empty groups). 


 ; Search the text for the pattern '(hello)' and print the result. 
 //echo -ag Number of matches: $regex(Hello World, /(Hello)/) match 1 is: $regml(1) 

 ; Prefix an event with '$' allows the use of a regular expression in the 'matchtext' field which will fill $regml with the result. 
 on $*:TEXT:/Hello/g:*:echo -ag found $regml(0) matches, first match was $regml(1)
