Configure Error Parsing bug and request
« on: June 21, 2024, 01:56:54 PM »
In the "Configure Error Parsing" dialog, it would be nice to have a top-level tool for testing an expression, where it will go through the expressions you have configured and tell you which expression matches (and maybe even tell you if there is a deselected expression that would have matched if nothing currently matches).

For example, I have lines that look something like this that are matching as errors:
Code: [Select]
Testing body type XiizardGt10-96in start at Fri Jun 21 09:04:36 2024 EDT
How do I know which expression is erroneously matching that line?

Second thing, a bug, this is inconsistent, but reproducible:  Bring up the Configure Error Parsing options, select default > def4.  Click to edit, and paste the above line in (as a character selection, no newline) to test the expression using "Validate".  Off-and-on, it may be related to getting a number hover-over pop-up after pasting, you will get this validation result.  Which probably should not be allowed anyway because what good is an error expression that does not match anything at all?

Added a hot fix for the incorrect matching.

A more full featured test would be handy for sure
