Regex Syntax Highlighting
« on: May 09, 2022, 11:10:03 pm »
In FiF, the search / replace text boxes should have syntax highlighting for regex.

All regex special characters should get colored.
There are so many specials it can be hard to remember if you need to escape something or not.


For example, see the online regex toy: https://regex101.com/
Looks like it uses alternating colors to split things up and also hover over tooltips for explanation.
