thanks for the response. In the docs, it shows how to purge the index doc
and everything in the cache.

I've tried a whole gang of regular expressions involving backslashes and .*
everywhere, but I get either "Syntax Error: Illegal backslash sequence" or
it just doesn't clear the cache of the objects i'm trying to clear.

Is it even possible to clear the cache based on hostname?

If someone could show me an example of how to clear the cache of every
object from a domain (if possible) i'd be very grateful.

thanks again,
matt hoopes
