Find Begin/End setting



  • @Ekopalypse OK your code works, question, could it also highly the Cod 1 and Cod2, I know I said between, but I thought it would find the Cod1 and Cod2 and include it as well

    find: Cod1.+?Cod2



  • @Alan-Kilborn Perfect



  • @Javier-Rivas

    Learn what it does, for yourself for the future:

    • match Cod1 exactly
    • .+? match any single character (the dot means “any single”), one or more times (the + means 1+ times), but as few times as needed (the ? specifies that)
    • match Cod2 exactly

    All 3 of these things must exist for you to have an overall match.



  • @Alan-Kilborn OK, so I have improved the code search to my use so here is my original search
    (?= "caup).+(?= "cues) < — notices the spacing and I removed the <

    first to find is “caup”, and it starts with 2 spaces in front of it
    last to find is “cues”, and it needs to stop 2 spaces before the “cues”

    —“caup”: < ---- it highlights the spaces and the code
    -{
    -adad
    -adasd
    -asdad
    -}
    ], < ------- it stops right here
    —“cues”: < ----- it ignores the spaces and the code

    so now it’s perfect to my standards



  • @Alan-Kilborn Yes, I call it motivation…lmao
    Yea, I wanted to add a comment and I clicked on reply to myself…hahahaha



  • @Alan-Kilborn there should be a cut mark and and replace mark that would be awesome



  • @Javier-Rivas said in Find Begin/End setting:

    there should be a cut mark and and replace mark that would be awesome

    That would be nice I suppose, but in practice it is not so bad without it.

    I’d like to see two separate commands: Begin Select and End Select. That way it would be easier to abort a begin-point by setting a new one (if you realize you’ve made a mistake in setting the origin), and it could also be a reminder in the menu that you haven’t yet set the begin point (Begin Select would be enabled and End Select would be disabled).

    BUT…it is definitely OK the way it currently works. And a downside of two commands is that using it from a shortcut would require two shortcuts to be allocated.

    Speaking of shortcuts, one thing that is lacking is tying this handy functionality to a shortcut by default. I tie mine to Ctrl+b.



  • Hi, @javier-rivas, @ekopalypse and @alan-kilborn and All,

    @javier-rivas, taking in account your additional information, my regex becomes :

    MARK (?s-i)^\x20\x20"caup":.+?(?=^\x20\x20"cues":)

    This regex :

    • Matches the literal string "caup":, preceded with two space characters ( because of \x20\x20 ) beginning a line, ( because of ^ ), with this exact case ( because of the (?-i) modifier )

    • Followed with the smallest ( because of ? ) non-null ( because of + ) range of any character ( because of (?s) modifier )…

    • But ONLY IF followed with the literal string "cues":, preceded with two space characters ( because of \x20\x20 ) beginning a line, ( because of ^ ), with this exact case ( because of the (?-i) modifier ).

    Note that the (?=......) syntax is a look-ahead structure, in other words a condition, which must be true in order the present match, so far, to be valid but which is never part of the overall match


    Thus, in the text below :

      "caup":
    -{
    -adad
    -adasd
    -asdad
    -}
    ],
      "cues":
    

    It would mark and bookmark all the lines but the last one !

    Cheers,
