Error - EasyPattern verticalTab etc - fixed in 7.0.8

Post by DataMystic Support » Tue Sep 14, 2004 10:23 am

We've found an error with the handling of the ASCII 11 vertical tab character, stemming from our PCRE library. It matches the letter 'v' instead of ASCII 11.

A workaround is to use

Code: Select all

  \x0b instead of \v in perl patterns,
and to avoid use of EasyPattern keywords

Code: Select all

verticaltab, verticalwhitespace, vspace, worddelimiter, wordchar, columndelimiter, columnchar, linedelimiter, linechar, whitespace, word, line, column
The EasyPatterns aspect will be fixed in v7.0.8. The perl patterns will be fixed in a version to be announced.

[Note] The perl patterns will NOT be fixed - according to the documentation they do NOT support \v anyway.
