Creating a GrepList Template to Bypass Special Characters?
Mon, 08/04/2008 - 09:29 am
I want to count for the number of items in this list that have the pattern MyWave(1)* (there are three in this case). I am trying with GrepList(...), however I am confused about how to bypass the existing special characters () in a "(?i)MyWave(1).*" type RegExp template. I also want to be able to handle a wide range of cases with special characters in their names, such as ...
... and I want to do this without presumptions about what special characters are in the template that should be matched.
Basically, I wonder if a meta escape switch ... say X ... exists to construct "(?iX)MyWave(1).*" so that every character given in the RegExp template is interpreted as a true character rather than a special character.
