**Case Sensitive **Specifies that the search is to be case-sensitive.
**Exclude Comment Lines **Specifies that matches which occur only within a Clarion comment are to be excluded from the search results. Only certain files, identified on the Options dialog, receive this special Clarion processing.

Match Pattern at End of Line Matches the pattern if at the end of a line.
