help to build a RegEx pattern, Pearl 5 compatible

I have regularly to search a large number of text documents for files that contain both a given word AND a given date (dd.mm.yyyy) - and optional, a third word. The search terms can be placed anywhere in the text and occur in any sequence.

My text editor supports Regular Expressions (according to its help file Pearl 5-compatible as far as I understand; also its programmer has his own RegEx web site online) and I know that I have to escape the special meaning of some characters by using a backslash (dd\.mm\.yyyy) but I am totally drawing a blank in building the complete regex pattern that does what I am looking for.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.
