Silly me, after I send out my last email, I found this mentioned twice in the archives of the newsgroup (messages that are over 5 years old). Adding handling "?pattern?" search.c should be easy enough, or should the code be left as-is and the docs updated instead? I know it doesn't make any difference for those who have used acme/wily for a while, but it discrepancies like that won't impress any newcomers. BTW, I remember reading in the archives about "sensible" B3 auto-expansion, and how it can't handle certain wildcards. I can't find the original posting now (probably can't think of the right search terms), but is there any reason why B3 shouldn't accept all regex meta-characters (especially ?, [, ], and |) during auto-expansion if it can get the expanded selection to start with a ":", when it can be fairly certain that it's a regular expression? If that fails, then it can simply go back to the current behaviour.
