I found this question on StackOverflow. It worked great but I also need to include lines that have non-alphabet characters in it like:

some_name
some.name

And add prefixes like this:

start:"some_name"  
start:"some.name"

Based on the the other topic I'm guessing I need a regex that matches dots and such besides just regular text.

Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

Nevermind. Found the answer:

^(.*)$
