Is it possible to submit regex to google web searches?

Is it at all possible to submit any form of a regex to google web search? Even a wildcard character would be interesting tool. Or is it literal strings and options only?

"Google supports wildcards, actually!

No regular expressions, unfortunately, I doubt even google have the server capacity to perform regex searches on their databases. The wildcard (*) is a fairly powerful tool regardless."
