Reply to: Search/Replace with Regular Expression using Derek’s codeJanuary 28, 2014 at 8:15 pm
Looks like it is based on something I suggested during a discussion with someone else as a possible workaround for finding and replacing entities. We both decided it wasn't a good idea to use in that instance and came up with a better solution for that problem. http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,3275.0.html
Not sure what that regular expression is supposed to be doing. It isn't mine.
The rest of that code works for me, provided I put in a regex I understand and run it against a document that has some content the regex will match.
I'd concentrate on the regular expression as being the problem part of your code. Presumably it is just not matching what you want it to match.
