Any line in a clip that doesn't start with either ";"-comment or "^"-clip
command is considered to be literal text to be inserted at the current
<---separator replaces old contents
any text line(s) immediately following the delete command ^!menu edit/delete
will be inserted as you want.

^!find "$$$$" was failing to in (say) "$$$$$$$$$".
On going back to the Help file I found that a find is by default whole words
only! :-( so ... either of:
^!find "$$$$" T
^!find $$$$ T
will work just fine. So does:
^!find "$$$$" [t]
I assume because "[" and "]" are just treated as invalid flags and ignored.
Paul - sorry for the irrelevant digression into regexps which now appears to
have just been a confusing/complicated way of turning off the "whole words"
flag! Hopefully though it introduced you to Regexps which when they *ARE*
needed, are *VERY* powerful :-)
