If you are using the C regular expressions API, then you are not using
PCRE, it is much closer to GNU regular expressions which are far more
limited. In fact I have not really been able to find good documentation on
what is supported. If you want a more robust regular expression like the
ones you can test at regex101.com, you should use the ones available in
International Components for Unicode. It is not fully PCRE, but much
closer. I suppose you could search for the service program and use ICU if
it is there, and the regular C API's if it is not.

Expression "dcl-f\s+filea" did not work for me using iSphere search. I
did just a short test and I will debug that later on.

But "dcl-f[ ]+filea" or "dcl-f +filea" worked well.

I have been looking at Regular expression but cannot figure it out.

A good regex for that would be something like: 'dcl-f\s+filea'.

That would search for 'dcl-f', one or more whitespace characters, then
