Re: [NTS] Search and replace Regular Expression
- Hello Steve,
A month ago I posted an extensive list and discussion of RegEx
resources on the NoteTab Clips group:

Subject: [Clip] RegEx Resources
There are links to tutorials that are understandable by newbies. I found
them to be very helpful and also good refreshers. The built-in NoteTab
RegEx help file is basically a regurgitation of the official RegEx spec
written by Philip Hazel. It was written as a reference document, not as
a tutorial and assumes you already know what a RegEx is.
The Perl.org tutorials start from the basic "hello world" level and have
lots of examples. Just ignore the Perl specific syntax and absorb the
RegEx info. The perlrequick document is a good tool to print out and
To the Group: I suspect I am not the only one who didn't realize (or
forgot), that this is one of two overlapping NoteTab groups on Yahoo.
This one (NoteTab Scripts) seems to have almost the same agenda
as NoteTab Clips. Both deal with clips and both deal with RegEx.
Why two groups??? It's been years since I set up my email filters so
any distinction is long lost and I have been operating on automatic
ever since. It would seem that, short of dual posting, a lot of info and
interested audience is lost. I would guess that not every one is signed
up with both groups.
