Match pattern and match regular expression context help unclear

I'm using LabVIEW 8.6 and have noticed that the context help for 'match pattern' and 'match regular expression' seem to be unclear. The 'match regular expression' has no connectors in the context help diagram (until you drop the vi into a diagram, and then the connectors show up), and the 'match pattern' help does not tell you that you can use it to simply match a string as well. Is this known, or is has it been fixed in 8.6.1?

No change in 8.6.1

A string is a simple pattern, this isn't something that needs fixing.

 

Keep in mind that Match Regular Expression is the better choice for complex regexps.  The Match Pattern documentation says it "gives you fewer options for matching strings but performs more quickly than the Match Regular Expression function."
