v.0.38 Search wildcard

Post by marsh »

When using search tool wildcard and a partial word:
"test*.*" works (two asterisks shouldn't be needed)
"test*" does not work (the better form to use)

Yes, specifically for condition field. Ex. Iptc:all fields 'is any of' test* (in <ctrl + f> search dialog). Looking for keyword of 'testing'.
I don't have problem with the filename field however. It accepts a single *.

Oh ok. No it's normal. Search use for 'is any of' a regular expression, so any letters following is '.*'

Thanks for the reminder. I didn't need to use a wildcard in first place since the option 'contains' performed partial word search fine. I'm safe from reading my old regular expression chart for a while. :)
