I am a web developer and software developer who has been working with web-facing application development since 1998. I have shifted between ColdFusion, PHP, ASP, and Java throughout the years (now focusing on Groovy on Grails applications).

I have developed user interfaces and website front-ends in Flash (back in the days before Flash had functions!), XHTML, and now HTML5.

comment IntelliJ IDEA on Lion Menu no response
I'm not sure this is the right place for this. The IntelliJ Devnet Community would be more appropriate.

comment How can I find non-ASCII characters in text files?
I shouldn't bother responding, but I need to point out two things: First, you could have simply pointed that out, and suggested a fix, and I would have updated my suggestion. That's how StackExchange works - answers can be edited and cleaned up. Second, it's funny you are making such a big deal about the range, since that's the exact same range you suggested above! It's OK though, I understand that you would rather knock someone down than be helpful.

Also, you have to match the empty string, or empty files will show up as non-ASCII. I think that is incorrect behavior.

@tchrist I appreciate the feedback. Of course, it would be more efficient to stream the file. However, the original question specifically asked about scanning a small file. Your comment about the regex is incorrect, simply due to the fact that I actually tested my code before I posted it. Sorry if my range is incorrect - that might be a valid comment, but your comment is unnecessarily aggressive and rude. I was simply providing a working Groovy-based example, since the question mentioned it.
