No option to match at line breaks for ^$


It looks like regexpal.com has removed the option to match at line breaks for the ^$ beginning and end markers, so for the final demonstration in this video I now get no matches. Am I missing something on their website? Is there a different workaround to get the results from the video? Thank you.

Hey Jeffrey Holcomb, it looks like regexpal just updated their UI. Just above the input where you enter your regex, all the way to the right, there's a "flags". Click on that and there's a multiline option you can check. I think that will help. :thumbsup:
