Delete from search pattern to end of line?

Post by BrightonRobin » Thu Jun 16, 2005 5:02 am


I've searched through these forums and read through the help, and I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.

For a web log, for each line, I want to find an occurrence of a text pattern, ".html", and then delete everything else from there to the end of line.

Sorry if it's a basic question. I'd really appreciate some advice.

Thanks again,

Just search for the perl pattern


and Replace with nothing.

Ensure the options [...] setting is set to minimal match.
