"You are not authorised to send private messages"

@therube
What program did you use to make this pic?

I know that such a pic can be made by scroll capture, but I didn't find a program with good capturing function.
I think I was looking for in past to capture a kind of a map, which means scroll both up-down and left-right scroll capture.

You could give FastStone Capture (Shareware) a try: http://www.faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm
I use it for almost 10 years and are very satisfied.

Current version is Shareware ($$).
Old version is Freeware (a search should find it on some freeware sites).

Old was fine, but at some point Mozilla changed their concept of "scrolling windows" (& a lot of my shots are from within SeaMonkey browser) & the old would no longer capture that, but the newer pay does. So depending on your needs, the old, free may work just fine.

I've used FSCapture for a long time now, since the old free, into the new pay.


There are others, including free, that do scrolling captures, but its been some time since I've looked at them & don't recall their names offhand.

NotNull wrote:regex:^^[0-9]{4}" - ".*
As a beginner with Regex, I have 2 questions:
1. Why using double ^^?
2. The using of quotation marks " - " is it special for Everything, or you can find it also in other places?

Good questions!

1. That was anticipating on the next step. For Everything, one ^ is enough, but doesn't mind multiple ^^ (It's "just" a marker for the start of the filename).
The query will end up on the CMD command-line, where ^ is an escape-character. If yoy want a literal ^, you have to escape it with .. a ^ : ^^
In short: Everything doesn't mind the ^^, CMD needs it.

BTW a "|" from your Everything query also has to be escaped in CMD: ^|


2. That is valid in more places. Note that there are multiple regular expression 'languages', each with their own syntax (largely the same, but with little differences)
It isn't documented (*), but a space could also be represented by a "\s" ( regex:^^[0-9]{4}\s-\s.* )


(*) I used to try to avoid using regular expressions. Each time I had to use SED, AWK and the like (not very often), I basically had to re-learn it and read lots of documentation. So I tried to work around that (good for creativity ;-) )
Since using Everything however, I find myself using regex more and more. That's because Eveything has a smart subset of the gazillion exotic regex options and a perfectly clean and clear documentation for it ( Menu:Help > Regex Syntax ).
Probably those exotic options are implemented in Everything, too (most programs use an existing library), but at least they don't clutter up the documentation.
Long story short: I hope those extra options will not be documented.

@NotNull
Thanks. Now it's more clear.
I don't think that the Regex info in Everything is enough to learn Regex from. The user needs some examples to learn and understand how things work.
I began by articles like this and this.
As you, I think you can't remember all these things unless you messing with it often.
Not as you, I don't see a problem to add "\s" and such to Regex Syntax Help. It's good there is a full documentation for all options.
If you afraid it will be too much long, you can keep the short form and use a reference to a full documentation.

@ovg
Thank you. I bookmarked those sites.
As NotNull said, the problem is not with learning it, but because people (like me) don't use it very often, they need to re-learn it each time they need it.

That's a good idea: Add to the current (short, simple) help: "Everything uses the xyz regular expression syntax" (with a link to xyz).

@ovg: I really like the last 2 of those links.
rexegg.com (nice wordplay :-)) has a fresh viewpoint, which made it easy to digest the info.
the online tester at regex101.com also displays the 'price' of a query. Learned a lot already (after 5 minutes :-) )

Thanks!!

No worries, mate. I still have some Everything related projects to finish (and post here), among which an EFU browser, Everything as a File Explorer replacement and a really cool one that I'm currently working on.
Maybe I'm gonna create a "whitelist" of people that I will help. And you're definitely on that.
I'll let you know if and when I leave this forum.

I guess that void also has plans and work in this direction. I don't know if you two talking each other behind the scenes, but it seems for best results you should.

Nice! I just solved my first 3 puzzles and that was fun.
Beginner level, to be clear. I took a look at the more complicated ones and that looks like a cat walked on the upper row of a keyboard :-)
You probably need a black belt in regex to solve those. And that is way above my (current) level.
Thanks for thr link!
