Searches for a string.
This command is available in the editor only.
Rules for regular expressions:
|.||Matches any character|
|\(||This marks the start of a region for tagging a match.|
|\)||This marks the end of a tagged region.|
|\n||Where n is 1 through 9 refers to the first through ninth tagged region when replacing. For example if the search string was Fred\([1-9]\)XXX and the replace string was Sam\1YYY applied to Fred2XXX this would generate Sam2YYY.|
|\<||This matches the start of a word using Scintilla’s definitions of words.|
|\>||This matches the end of a word using Scintilla’s definition of words.|
|\x||This allows you to use a character x that would otherwise have a special meaning. For example, \[ would be interpreted as [ and not as the start of a character set.|
|[...]||This indicates a set of characters, for example [abc] means any of the characters a, b or c. You can also use ranges, for example [a-z] for any lower case character.|
|[^...]||The complement of the characters in the set. For example, [^A-Za-z] means any character except an alphabetic character.|
|^||This matches the start of a line (unless used inside a set, see above).|
|$||This matches the end of a line.|
|*||This matches 0 or more times. For example Sa*m matches Sm, Sam, Saam, Saaam and so on.|
|+||This matches 1 or more times. For example Sa+m matches Sam, Saam, Saaam and so on.|
