match( string[, pos[, endpos]])
If zero or more characters at the beginning of string match this regular
expression, return a corresponding MatchObject instance. Return None if the
string does not match the pattern; note that this is different from a
search( string[, pos[, endpos]])
Scan through string looking for a location where this regular expression
produces a match, and return a corresponding MatchObject instance. Return
None if no position in the string matches the pattern; note that this is
different from finding a zero-length match at some point in the string.
