Regex is indeed a built-in option for global search and that search 
finds all objects that contain the search string. However, I was 
referring to searching within a single script, a script I am editing. 
Right now, one can search in the editor by hoping from instance to 
instance of the string. What I had in mind was seeing all lines with 
a given string at once. There is not grep option for the search or 
replace within the editor, either. At least not that I see that in 
3.0.
