They can appear invisible to the user, making it almost impossible to debug.
The invisibility is because the pasted tab becomes a zero width character.
Human readable copy reveals it as "\t", but the GUI doesn't show it as that.
Code: Select all
Perl pattern [abc] with [\tdef] [ ] Match case [ ] Whole words only [ ] Case sensitive replace [ ] Prompt on replace [ ] Skip prompt if identical [ ] First only [ ] Extract matches Maximum text buffer size 4096 [ ] Maximum match (greedy) [ ] Allow comments [X] '.' matches newline [ ] UTF-8 Support [ ] Process longest strings first [ ] Simultaneous search
Can you do something to prevent this?
Can you ensure that tabs other than the delimiter between search & replace columns get automatically converted to \t and displayed as such?
