?regex is a nice starting point, it's got plenty of details on meta
characters and characters classes, if you need more advanced stuff you'll
probably have to look at the perl regex documentation, I believe it's
linked in ?regex.
I might try something like
grep("^[xz]\\.")
or
grep("^[xz][.]")
or if you'd consider a different function,
startsWith(jj, "x.") | startsWith(jj, "z.")
