Examples:
The following is an example of a console pattern match listener extension point:

   <extension
         point="org.eclipse.ui.console.consolePatternMatchListeners">
      <consolePatternMatchListener
            class="com.example.ExampleConsolePatternMatcher"
            id="com.example.ExampleConsolePatternMatcher"
            regex=".*foo.*">
         <enablement>
            <test property="org.eclipse.ui.console.consoleTypeTest" value="exampleConsole"/>
         </enablement>
      </consolePatternMatchListener>
   </extension>
In the above example, the contributed console pattern matcher will be used for consoles with a type of "exampleConsole."

API Information:
Value of the attribute class must be a fully qualified name of a Java class that implements the interface org.eclipse.ui.console.IPatternMatchListenerDelegate.

Supplied Implementation:
The console plug-in provides a console type property tester for enablement expressions that tests the value of IConsole.getType(). The property tester's identifier is org.eclipse.ui.console.consoleTypeTest.
