Using RubyMine/IntelliJ Regexp Search/Replace

RubyMine’s interactive search/replace is awesome. The Regexp feature is especially useful. Not only will it help you edit faster, but it will improve your ability to write RegExp’s in your code. When do you need to use a regexp? Whenever a standard find/replace won’t cut it.
