Search for whole word only?
Submitted by Wednesday, 26 January, 2005 - 22:31on
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.
