String test = "Daisy";
String RE = "Daisy | Daisies";


Does not match

The spaces inside the regular expression do not match characters of the string.

Beware of Spaces

Of course, leading or trailing spaces in either the string or the RE must match. (The " are not actually part of the regular expression nor are they part of the string.)
