Lookup the online Dictionary for 'filter', it's in the 'command'
folder. I think it is the only one that has it's own set of wildcard

Most other functions that use wildcards (ie matchText, replaceText)
are those that require regex. LC uses PCRE so you can check that out


Down in the bottom right corner is a 'Quick Reference', and 'most used
tokens' is likely selected so you can see that:

. = any character (a true wild card)
\d = any digit
\w = any word character etc etc
