Regular expressions documentation
« on: August 02, 2016, 09:49:12 pm »
[\X]: It isn't clearly documented what letters for "X" are supported.
For example: [\b] matches backspace.
What others?

Perl: \K: Doc says unsupported, but it seems to work.
Perl: \pL and \PL are undocumented, but work.

/z: This should work during "<Current selection>" match to match the end of the selection.

Docs could definitely be better for [\x] backslash docs. We will improve them. Anything that specifies either a character or set of characters works (\pL).

\K really isn't implemented. At a minimum, the feature isn't finished. I think it works with sgrep though. We may complete the implementation for the editor in the future.

/z doesn't support selections. I think it could be added though.
