Regular Expressions
« on: March 16, 2006, 03:41:53 am »
   What flavor of regular expressions are used in the search & replace?  I want to know, and I plan on placing it somewhere on the wiki page for user convience.

Duh.  I should've thought of that.

thought i'd tack my question onto this old thread rather than start a new one.

according to the wxregex docs there is more than one "flavor" of regex. http://www.wxwindows.org/manuals/2.6.3/wx_wxresyn.html#resyntax

from my tinkering in the latest build it appears the ARE flavor (seemingly the most advanced) is not supported. For instance, I cannot search for whole words using the syntax

Code: [Select]
\w+
am i doing something wrong here? if ARE is really not supported, would it be possible to add it. ARE is very convenient.

cheers

(BTW - this was my first download of a nightly snapshot. the improvements over the old RC2 is astonishing! you guys should have advertised it more heavily)
