regexp summary

the help does not seem to contain a summary of the regexp syntax winmerge uses.
is this because the summary is just "regexp, duh"? ;)
even if it is, is there a page somewhere that provides a list of supported syntax?
does the syntax for "file filter" and "line filter" differ?

The summary is: WinMerge uses the PCRE library.

many thanks for that.
and my other question?
does it use the same syntax for both file and line filters?
