Regular expression e.g.
(.*HASH reference.*\n|.*subroutine entry.*\n)for Find/Replace.
It will find/replace correct (matched) lines in a file which contains them.
However, if I apply the same RegEx on a file with no actual matches, Notepad++ will select entire file (all lines) as a match.
How can this be, is this simply the case of bad regex? I don’t see it. Please explain.
Doesn’t seem to have that problem for me. Couple suggestions you might try, replace
.*in your regex with
\Rand see if that helps at all.
