Unicode tables and properties in PCRE ?

Post by DFH » Mon May 04, 2020 6:22 pm

The last line of UTF-8 SUPPORT section in the Help page for Pattern Matching Reference is as follows:
PCRE does not support the use of Unicode tables and properties or the Perl escapes \p, \P, and \X.
Do the new libraries used in TextPipe 11.x now support Unicode tables and properties?

For examples in another environment, see https://javascript.info/regexp-unicode

Best regards,

David

Yes, the latest regex library we use has substantial unicode support.

We've updated the help file for the next version to reflect the same content as the source library -
