RE: Regular Expression Question: How To Search For Section Titles

Hi,
Maybe EdSharp uses .Net regular expressions, and maybe they are different from 
Perl regular expressions. I was trying to use $1 to capture and replace, but it 
was literally inserting $1. I was trying to put 
\f before $1 in the replacement expression. I'm attempting to find what it 
thinks might be titles and put a page break before them so that I can simply 
look through the document and spot check to see if the lines are really titles 
rather than read the whole thousand pages and find them all by hand.

Thanks.

Jim

It does, just not inside a character class. If you wanted to match something 
from one of several character classes using `|', you would do something
like:
----------
[a-z]|[A-Z]|[...]
----------
But you can just spell out everything you want to match in a single character 
class, so I don't see that as particularly useful.
