Enhanced execution box with regex pattern matching

yalias has a window with two buttons and a text widget. The left button clears the widget and is bound to the Escape key. The right button matches the contents of the widget against a series of regular expressions that the user has previously specified in their $HOME/.yaliasrc, and executes the specified command if it matches any of them.
