If present, the Top Trails-With-Certain-Documents Report: Patterns (trailswith) option indicates that wusage should display the most commonly followed trails (paths) through the server that included certain specific documents. This report is useful in order to determine how users arrive at a specific page.

The documents to be looked for are indicated using pattern or regular expression syntax. See the Patterns and Regular Expressions section for more information. It is important to remember that the document will not necessarily be the first or last item in the trail, so it is important to use the * wild card at both ends, unless you actually want to match the document only at the beginning or end. See the Patterns and Regular Expressions section for more information. Also see the example above.

After the pattern, you must specify a label to appear in the report. This is indentical to the syntax for the Items to be Charted (totalsgroup) report.
