Syntax For Regular Expressions

Recommended Posts

Can someone point me to a document which gives the regular expression syntax for SouceBoost IDE search and replace? If it uses Regex, which flavor is it?

 

Thanks,

Chuck

SourceBoost IDE uses Scintilla control as its editor. Below is an extraction from Scintilla documentation that describes regular expression syntax. More info can be found here http://www.scintilla.org/ScintillaDoc.html#Searching

.  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, when applied to Fred2XXX this would generate Sam2YYY.
\< This matches the start of a word.
\> This matches the end of a word.
\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.
