Changing <options> within <select> on input

I'm making a <select></select> with lots of <option></option>. It
contains all possible options. Because of the length of the list, I
also have an <input type="text">.

This is what I wish to do:
onKeyDown I want all options that don't contain (or begin with, it
doesn't matter which one) the typed letters to be removed from the
<select>.

My problem is that I don't know of any code to find words and identify
letters.

You would need to use a Regular Expression.

Please don't recommend sites like that.

The code quality typically varies from poor to worse, and their articles
are out-dated.

Stop doing that, too.
