   use Tail::Tool::Regex;

   $regex = Tail::Tool::Regex->new( regex => '^find' );

   # if replacement is to be done specify a replacement string
   $regex = Tail::Tool::Regex->new(
       regex   => qr/find$/,
       replace => 'found',

   # if the regex is used for colouring specify the colours
   $regex = Tail::Tool::Regex->new(
       regex  => qr/find$/,
