if ( re.multiline ){ 
   console.log("Test1-multiline property is set");  
} else { 
   console.log("Test1-multiline property is not set");  
} 
re = new RegExp( "string", "m" ); 

if ( re.multiline ){ 
   console.log("Test2-multiline property is set");  
} else { 
   console.log("Test2-multiline property is not set");  
}
