Search for whole word only?
Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, 26 January, 2005 - 22:31
It would be VERY nice if I could easily search just for a string that is an entire word, and not possibly embedded in another word. For instance, in this mode, searching for 'it' should not match the word 'hit', just the word 'it'. Other editors (UltraEdit, NEdit) have a button called 'whole word only' or some such, on their search dialog. As it is, in jedit, I have to use a regular expression, and surround the word with \b characters.

I need this so often I am considering abandoning jedit.
A macro would be just another waste of time/learing curve
all we need is one checkbox in the search pane.
A patch would be nice tho.
Why not writing a little macro ?
