    search and replace regular expressions

    Does anyone know how I can use regular expressions in Visual Studio's search and replace to find every line which contains the words "xxx" AND "yyy" ?

    Regular Expressions (Visual Studio)

    If xxx always comes before yyy you can use
    Code:
    <xxx>.*<yyy>
    If the words can appear in either order use
    Code:
    {<xxx>.*<yyy>}|{<yyy>.*<xxx>}
