Geany Replace using Regular Expressions Subject description: This is a starter post to spark interest and elicit further tips
Imagine you have a very long list of links.
Within that list are custom tags on every line, maybe 1000 lines.
At the end of every link line, between each of the tags <dd> and <tn> is a two digit decimal number representing thumbnail width.
You originally used bash scripting, or PHP to parse the list and create web pages and thumbnails of the correct width.
You don't want thumbnails anymore and want to convert to a bullet list (as used in wordpress etc)
The end of each link must end in
Geany can do this easily . . . with 'replace' and 'use regular expressions'.
That was not a very helpful comment.
You have not read and understood the post properly.
Did I say there was a problem?
Did I ask for guidance or help?
I even provided a subject description to highlight the purpose of the thread.
It is possible you did not read or understand the subject description.
Even without that, it is clear that I am providing a helpful 'howto' for novices.
It should spark interest and elicit further examples.
If it doesn't, I will add more in the future.
Although it is regex it does not really belong in the programming section.
This is more of a cheat sheet of useful tips for Geany Replace - using regex.
So feel free to contribute if you are interested.
