4416Re: Can a RegExp replace handle incrementing a number?
- Jan 10, 2006Oh wow... thanks *so* much Mark! I never expected you to do all the
work for me. This is a great kindness, and I really appreciate your
effort. It works like a charm! (I'm not sure how I managed to make
you like me, but hey, I won't complain! You've proven pretty likeable
I haven't had a lot of time to play with it yet, since I'm on my way
out the door, but I'll experiment more tomorrow. One of the things
I'll be looking into is whether I can modify the code to pass the
first two required lines as arguments for the text filter, since,
while I understand the great versatility of what you've written, for
my purposes the search and replace parameters will rarely change (I
can see the need to decrement on occasion, but that's dead simple
with what you've provided). I'm also curious to see whether I can run
the filter from the cursor location rather than over the entire file
(I actually just tried this, and it seems to work, as long as I
select the desired lines, and as long as the first two selected lines
are the search and replace expressions). I'll check all this out in
more depth tomorrow, and will report my findings.
Thanks very much once again, Mark!
