Lucene Wildcard Searches
Submitted by weberjn on Tuesday, 21 March, 2017 - 12:16
Hi,

for me the killer feature of jEdit is LucenePlugin. Lucene searches some 15 years of project notes for me, each year a simple 1MB .txt file.
You could well advertise more for LucenePlugin...

Anyway, looks like you cannot search wildcards or regular expressions (Standard Analyzer).

Of the Term Modifiers from the Lucene docs, only some terms work for me, Wildcard, Regular Expressions and Fuzzy Searches do not get accepted, the plugin simply does nothing.
Actually, I use mostly Proximity Searches, which still help a lot.

What did I do wrong?

And could you list some working search expression examples in the Plugin Help, please?
