allowing carriage return in regExp

allowing carriage return in regExp

(OP)
I have the following expression, but need to allow carriage return. I have read several sites regarding this but can't seem to get a grip on how to do it. Can you please help?

Current expression:"^[a-zA-Z0-9.,_ \-\r]+$"

I need to add carriage return which is '\r' I just can't seem to be able to use it correctly.

RE: allowing carriage return in regExp

To match over multiple lines you can add the /m modifier to the pattern.

And a 'newline' for documents created on Windows comprises of two characters, a carriage return (CR)ASCII 13 /r and a line feed (LF)ASCII 10 /n.
