Regular expression engine enhancement request Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I would like to see in the next OO release an enhancement to the find dialogue RE engine to using full PCRE [1] syntax. The open source RegexKit [2] provides the enhanced functionality. This would help when trying to do more complex matches using lookahead and behind assertions.

[2] http://regexkit.sourceforge.net
 
Seconded, especially lookahead, e.g.,
"(?:[A-Za-z])
which works in BBEdit’s regex mode, but not OmniOutliners, as part of a poor man’s smart quotes. (Which is another enhancement request, BTW.)
 
OTOH, the “Replace Subexpression #1” option does help, e.g., with the pattern
(")[A-Za-z]
