On 3rd of August 2021, Tom Lane committed patch:
Add assorted new regexp_xxx SQL functions. This patch adds new functions regexp_count(), regexp_instr(), regexp_like(), and regexp_substr(), and extends regexp_replace() with some new optional arguments. All these functions follow the definitions used in Oracle, although there are small differences in the regexp language due to using our own regexp engine -- most notably, that the default newline-matching behavior is different. Similar functions appear in DB2 and elsewhere, too. Aside from easing portability, these functions are easier to use for certain tasks than our existing regexp_match[es] functions.
