    Hi Guys: Make a memo consisting of [280 numbers like this]

      Hi Guys:

      Make a memo consisting of [280 numbers like this]

      1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890

      Then search for the longest string you can w/o a crash.

      My settings are "Ign Case" no, "RegEx" yes, "Top Start" yes, "Wrap" yes, and
      "All Segs" no.

      For me:

      69 OK
      123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789

      70 CRASH
      1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890

      This test shows more or less the number of recursions you Palm allows.

      I am curious what happens on your Palms. My guess is that the Visor will be
      the loser and otherwise all other Palms will be more or less the same.

      Please tell the Forum about your results.

      BTW, the crash is innocent [soft reset is needed] but still please backup
      prior to it.

      Best regards, Paul

          on a palm m505 with os 4 it works with 42 and crashes from 43 on.

          strange for me is the fact, that find again "g" works with much more
          numbers, but the palm crashes with the next following command.

              Here is a new spin on the behavior. The *first* time after a soft reset, I
              can search for a huge string without apparent problem. Example: 240 chars
              worked okay.

              However, the *second* search in the same session crashes as soon as I get up
              to 34 chars (33 chars works fine).

                  32 yes, 33 crash: Visor Platinum, OS 3.5

                  I left "wrap" off, and would also get a crash when repeating the
                  search (with G) and a match was not found toward the end of the memo.

                  If I select up to 255 characters in the memo, tap the F button,
                  and then search for those characters, there is no crash. I can repeat
                  the search without a crash too, as long as there is another match in
                  the memo.

                  I'll see if I can borrow "Mastering Regular Expressions." I've heard
                  it praised a lot, but have never had trouble using regexps myself, so
                  have never bought it. I do have a few great O'Reilly Perl books
                  though, which have hardly been used since I decided to write in Python
                  instead for the sake of maintenance. That can get expensive, so I'm
                  cautious about buying more O'Reilly books that I may not use much.
