Ummmff. Yeah, tell the world what this product is good for really, and toss the major version number.
It didn’t struck my mind that it could have something with RegEx to do. Too early in the morning I guess. But perhaps I would have suspected it if I had used Icon mode, now I use text labels and so I see only “TMatch” which to me really means matching only with literal text.
Explicit RegEx or Literal Text
So, silly me didn’t expect this to be RegEx-related. I’m actually quite familiar with using RegEx although in my world (or - plug, plug, plug - in PowerGrep’s or EditPad Pro’s world, which I use daily) I’m used to explicitly switching between “Literal text” or “Regular Expression” when matching text.
In PowerGrep like so, which can’t really be misinterpreted:
… and in EditPad like so; on/off and no in-betweens:
I’d go for this “knowing exactly what you’re doing” kind of approach. Having a mix-match of both at the same time is… well, a bit confusing.
