Simple request I think.

Being new to TextPipe I am having a few probs getting up and running.

I also have Pattern helper but can't figure how to do the following.

Make a filter that filters any line that starts with ;;; for example. I just want to remove the whole line.

So it could be:

;;; This is line to remove
Don't remove this one
;;; This is another line to remove

Also if the ;;; was in the middle of the line, to recognize it and delete the whole line.

I thought Pattern helper would show me the pattern to use, but alas can't figure it.

Thanks in advance for any help.

As previously explained in an email, EP Helper won't help with this.

An EasyPattern to use with the Restrict to matching lines filter is:

Code: Select all

[ lineStart ];;;
remember to use a subfilter of Remove\Remove All.


Code: Select all
