6261[NTB] Wish List
- Nov 6, 1999Working on whole sites sometimes I need to search (and replace) thousands
of strings on a bunch of pages.
A powerful tool can be an "exclude from search", just like the minus on
AltaVista. For example, if I look for "img src", I'd like to exclude "img
I know this can be done using "regular expressions", as explained in Perl
manual, but a note in Perl manual say also "The three principle virtues of
a programmer are Laziness, Impatience, and Hubris" :-)
So, an input box to exclude strings can really be helpful.
A nasty trick for lazy writers is to replace every "string1" with
"string1+string2", then replace "string2+string2" with a single "string2".
It works almost fine.
