Special Character on regexp

Postby dmacadar » Thu Aug 14, 2014 8:07 pm

Hi I have a problem, I ve replaced files with (..) but then noticed that since the software is not taking the extension I need to remove the ones with . at the end of the name.
I have used the following with success.

Replace by: /1

After procesing and changing around 500 cases I am noticing that the the BRU its skipping the files with special characters lile the ñ, used on the spanish language.


Can someone help?

Thank you.

Usually, RegEx takes only the standard 7-bit ASCII chars (the American alphabet a,b,c,...-x,y,z) into account.

It depends on the programmer which regex engine he uses and how he implements it.
Maybe BRU can handle only the standard American alphabet.

Search the forum for 'umlauts' to find more information posted.
