The pattern name defaults to 'pattern'. This will always be the case 
when the user specifies a pattern on the command line with no other options.

Where multiple patterns are defined in an input file ('filename syntax 
for the pattern), each has a unique name in the file.

The pattern name can also be set via the -pname qualifier.

So it makes sense to include the pattern string in the qualifier value, 
and to rename it to "Pattern" in the report output.
