[Solved] Qt Creator search: Regular expressions
Two of the regular expressions I need most for search are "match any string" and "match any one character".
I always fall into that trap when I enter a search term such as
@void set*(const bool *);@
...and actually expected them to find something.
Of course, there is the complete documentation of QRegExp, but I am sorry to say that these very basic regular expressions are buried somewhere in the pages of dozens of other expression terms.
For matching any single character, I need to use the .(dot), I found out.
But I cannot seem to find a working "match any string" term. I though it must be [^.], but that does not work as expected.
Edit: Found it.
Match single character: .
Match any string: .*
.* is match any character any number of time including zero. This might not be what you want, be careful
Yes, this is what I want. Thanks for clarifying.
