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
This caught me out earlier today.
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?
