off topic regarding garden work:
if your garden is as detailed and thorough as everything else you do, i’d gladly invite you to help me out in mine … the amount of daily magnolia leafs to collect is currently killing me this year and i’ve not been able to control my rakes and brooms with an adequate, repeatable regex ;-)

(?-s)^(.+#).\R(\1.\R)+ doesn’t work for my case,
it doesn’t find any occurrences
I’m looking for the results of your own tests, relative to the biggest block of consecutive identical lines, correctly handled by the six regexes A to F, above, and the test file, below
So it might be worth pointing out a good method for creating an arbitrary (i.e., large!) number of the
abcdefghij#9999999999lines in your request.
Here’s what I would do:
- put caret on that line in a tab created for the purpose of testing this
- start macro recording
- press ctrl+d (to execute the Duplicate Current Line function)
- stop macro recording
- go to the Macro menu and choose Run a Macro Multiple Times…
- fill in the prompt box entries and press Run (to create the desired number of lines)
To see how many lines of this type you’ve currently got, simply do a literal Count search for
So, guys, if you don’t mind, I would like you to test the regex C , with the first test file, above, in order to verify if it is “laptop-dependent”. I means, may be, results are not pertinent with my weak Windows XP configuration !?
I did this and obtained exactly the same results as you did, @guy038. Specifically, OK with 21524 identical lines, and NOT OK with 21525 identical lines. I tried both the shorter and longer versions of those “middle” lines in the file. All this using Notepad++ 7.2.2, 32-bit. I doubt that any other (reasonable) version of Notepad++ will show different results.
Do you have more to say on this topic? I’m interested…
