Hello @prahlad-makwana4145, @ekopalypse and All,
Welcome to the N++ Community !
Actually, in Extended mode, in addition to the search of standard characters and the 5 specific characters, below :
Within an Unicode encoding file, a particular character, of code-point U+00xx, with xx between 00 and ff, can be found with one of the four syntaxes below :
However, within an ANSI encoded file, an unicode character, of code-point U+00xx can be found ONLY IF xx belongs to the range [00-7F] OR to the range [A0-FF]. When xx lies between 80 and 9F, it generally searches for the question mark ( ? ) as it refers to an Unicode char, whose code-point is not handled by the ANSI encoding ! Only, the 5 characters U+0081, U+008D, U+008F, U+0090 and U+009D, without any glyph, are correctly searched !
The Extended search mode, as well as the Regular expression one, cannot be used for searching individual bytes of an UTF-8 or UCS-2 encoded character !
The replacement zone, in Extended mode, may contain any char, except for the NUL char ( \0 )
When using the Extended mode, especially when searching for letters, it is advisable to tick the Match case option
Reminder : In the Normal and Extended search mode, it’s best to NOT tick the Match whole word only option, especially when the searched string begins and/or ends with a NON-word character !
So, for instance, with the Match case option ticked, the Match whole word only option UN-ticked and the Extended [\n, \r, \t, \0, \x...) search mode selected :
If you search for the uppercase letter A, you can choose, either, the syntax \d065 or \o101 or \b1000001 or \x41
And if you look for the character, with decimal ASCII code 201 ( É ), type in, either, the syntax \d201 or \o311 or \b11001001 or \xC9
Personally, I think that the only advantage of using the Extended mode is when you want to use the \dxxx syntax, where xxx represents the decimal code of the character :
Between 000 and 255 ( so in range U+0000 - U+00FF) within a UTF-8 or UCS-2 encoded file
Between 000 and 127 or between 160 and 255 ( so in ranges U+0000 - U+007F or U+00A0 - U+00FF ) within an ANSI file
In all other cases, just prefer the Regular expression search mode ;-))
Also, since both this forum and the official issues tracker use Markdown, the links in the following paragraph will help you include sample data like I did, so that the forum Markdown engine doesn’t mangle your data by interpreting its special characters as Markdown:
This forum is formatted using Markdown, with a help link buried on the little grey ? in the COMPOSE window/pane when writing your post. For more about how to use Markdown in this forum, please see @Scott-Sumner’s post in the “how to markdown code on this forum” topic, and my updates near the end. It is very important that you use these formatting tips – using single backtick marks around small snippets, and using code-quoting for pasting multiple lines from your example data files – because otherwise, the forum will change normal quotes ("") to curly “smart” quotes (“”), will change hyphens to dashes, will sometimes hide asterisks (or if your text is c:\folder\*.txt, it will show up as c:\folder*.txt, missing the backslash). If you want to clearly communicate your text data to us, you need to properly format it.
I had remembered the older one from 7.5.6, but I was reasonably certain that it had been fixed, so was surprised that it had re-appeared in 7.5.9… which is why I went looking myself to see whether there was a regression problem. Since this was the first mention in this forum of the 7.5.9 Chinese-only bug, I figured it was worth it to share that it was a similar-but-different problem. (Like on regex questions, one freebie for a given problem, and then I just give hints and/or links to the FAQ.)
Hi, @daniel-mak, @peterjones and All,
Indeed, in some conditions, the last version, 220.127.116.11, of the DSpeelCheck plugin may produce this error :-((
Refer to the link, below, for additional information :
Wow…when people type stuff in the Compose window and it shows really odd things in the Preview window…do they just keep going?? Or do they stop, scratch their head, and try to figure out why what they typed created such odd results? Hmmm…there’s this link that says COMPOSE ?…maybe I’ll click that and see what it says…maybe a code block could avoid all that craziness…
Just wanting to say thank you for this amazingly helpful product!!
hi bro i wana ask one thing can we also compile and run java in it.
actully i’m a student of aiou University
and i’ve a assignment today is last day for submition and tomorrow is a extend day for it can you plesehelp me??
you are talking about unattended setup of notepad++, don’t you?
If this is the case then , afaik, npp doesn’t support silent installation flags
but this doesn’t mean you can’t do it.
If you download the npp source from github you will see that it includes an installer directory
under PowerEditor. You can modify the nsis scripts to your needs and build everything.
Or, do you know this?
Or what about using a zipped version and simply unpack it.
Or use one of the install recorders available on the web to record file and registry changes.
Use it as a model and write some scripts to automate the installation.
If your question was not about this topic, then you need to clarify what you want.
