Re: Regex Rename/Move problem

So it seems it was the backslash, when I use "\" it seems to work correctly, even (3). When "/" is used it does what I just described.

Regex Rename/Move problem

Let's say I have a file "a.txt". When I rename it the normal way (click on the name, edit, enter) to "b/a.txt", the program creates folder "b" and moves "a.txt" inside. When I do the same using regex rename and this pattern: a.txt > b/a.txt it behaves somewhat differently. 1) If the folder "b" doesn...

Re: Scripting Bugs

The code below produces "20160430 20160429 20160428" instead of "20160430 20160430 20160430".

Code: Select all

Re: Find hex string in specific position in a file

This is definitely useful and can replace regex in many situations!

So instead of, say, \x11\x12[\d\D]{3}\x23, I can now simplify it to just 11 12 ?? ?? ?? 23 :appl: :P

If you are looking for icons, you may also try this website:

I'm not really impressed with system icons myself.

Re: thumbnails

Here is what makes that image different from most JPEGs around. Every JPEG file consists of a bunch of segments, one after another. These segments start with 2 byte marker (of which first byte is always FF), followed by 2-byte value (which gives us size of these 2 bytes plus size of data to follow),...

Re: binary content search using regex seems broken

Thanks for the fixes. :appl: I finally got to testing the new version. First, I tried finding a file using 100 kB long regex sequence (in the form of a byte sequence, like this: \x11\x22 ...) --> success :tup: Then I tested finding a string that is right before the end of a 17 GB file. Normal + Text...

Re: Flatten Folder Failure

In fact, just pressing the escape without running a search or doing anything else triggers this bug. And I tried in ::fresh and it works there too.

Re: Flatten Folder Failure

Good job figuring it out :appl:.

I just tried content search, cancelled it using escape and got the same message. And it worked before the search, I tried.

Re: 15.70.0123 Regex Functionality Downgrade

I tested it now and it seems that multi-line doesn't work in any of the three modes. But it was probably an oversight and will be fixed.

It most likely is. After all, I was the one, who suggested the change :twisted:. See the thread I linked to.

Re: Functionality Downgrade

As I understand it, this applies only to Binary mode. Text and "Text and Binary" modes should still use multi-line mode. In a binary file, newline is meaningless and is not any less or more significant than any other random byte. You might be interested in this thread: http://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/v...

Re: binary content search using regex seems broken

Thanks, now binary regex works reasonably well :appl: . I did some tests and the "subscript out of range" issue is gone. I also noticed, that it didn't affect just binary regex, but also the "it's a hex string" mode. I was pleasantly surprised that regex "abc[\d\D]*def" was able to handle over 60 MB...
