Word Boundary in regular expressions

Post by etc » Wed Dec 17, 2014 6:01 am

Hope Word Boundary in regular expressions can be used:
\< Matches the start of a word.
\> Matches the end of a word.
\b Matches a word boundary (the start or end of a word).
\B Matches only when not at a word boundary.

Thank you!

The next update of Everything will support Perl Compatible Regular Expressions (PCRE). PCRE supports word boundaries.

PCRE
Heh.
I've had this opening, for some time now, whenever I start my browser, https://www.google.com/search?q=pcre&cl ... cial&gbv=1.
One day I'll get around to actually reading through it. (Actually I have dabbled with it.)
