Title: Multiline regex search/replace
Post by: Richard on July 30, 2007, 04:42:08 pm
How can I use multi-line Unix regular expressions in the Replace in Files window? Currently only single-line matches are being identified.

I am using SlickEdit 11.0.2 for Linux.

It's '\om'. The [>] button lists only the 'common' things.
But have a look at the excellent help topic 'Find and Replace with Regular Expressions' on this.
(@see the 'Regular Expression Help' menu entry - if this is already there in v11 ...)
