Can't edit the wiki and I have a change to make.



  • I noticed on the macro page that the value for “. matches newline” in the Regexp section is not documented. I believe it should be 1024.

    I think this is a more direct link to what you are referring to.

    I also think that you are correct, although probably a lot of Regular expression search mode users ignore the . matches newline checkbox and use instead (?s) or (?-s) at the start of their regular expression. Doing this makes unnecessary the need to know the 1024 mask value for the lParam of the 1702 message.

    BTW:

    (?s) at the start of Find what means effectively . matches newline checkbox ticked
    (?-s) at the start of Find what means effectively . matches newline checkbox cleared

    and:

    . matches newline checkbox ticked means the 1024 mask value is used
    . matches newline checkbox cleared means the 1024 mask value is not used
