Grep multiple patterns (words) occuring at the beginning of a line

$ grep -E -w '^(pattern1|pattern2|etcetera)' file.s

For example:

$ postconf -d | grep -E -w '^(syslog_name|smtpd_tls_security_level|smtpd_tls_wrappermode|smtpd_sasl_auth_enable|smtpd_relay_restrictions|smtpd_recipient_restrictions|smtpd_sasl_typesmtpd_sasl_path)'


I do self-funded research and I'm writing a book.
