Enabling multiline search with pcre:yes

You can also search using the PCRE subset supported by RE2 by adding pcre:yes to your search. When you use pcre:yes, the entire search expression is treated as a perl-compatible regular expression.

This is particularly useful when you want to do a search across line breaks.

A search for {\s+generate_java pcre:yes finds

mojom("mojom") {
  generate_java = true

while the search {\s+generate_java will not because { is not on the same line as generate_java.
