Pinned topic substitute macro pattern_string

‏2013-03-20T18:16:41Z |
the language describing the pattern_string hints at regex-like functionality:

Example 1

#sq ( substitute ( '^cn=', '***', 'cn=help' ) )#
Result: '***help'

however, whenever i try to use a regex to find a string to substitute i get this error:
QE-DEF-0396 The search_pattern '{my pattern}' argument to macro function 'substitute' is not valid

i'm trying to find the first instance of a square-bracketed string to rewrite a MUN. i'm trying the following:

#substitute('^[*]', 'my new cube', prompt('pMUN','mun'))#

any ideas why this isn't working?
