Description Jakub Jelinek 2016-12-20 12:35:06 UTC
Description of problem:

The backwards incompatible change of search expression syntax in joe 4.2 (or 4.1 already)? is annoying, but I can relearn it is weirdly backslashed version of regexps.  Except that I can't figure out how to search for character ranges anymore.  In joe 4.0, searching for \[a-e] worked the same as \[abcde], now it doesn't, even when [a-e] is valid regexp.  Searching for \[abcde] works.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

4.2-2.fc25

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2016-12-20 12:39:43 UTC
Note that:
https://sourceforge.net/p/joe-editor/mercurial/ci/default/tree/docs/man.md#searching-for-text
which documents the new search expression syntax mentions:
For example, \[A-Z] finds any uppercase letter.
but it doesn't actually work, while \[ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ] works.
