comment Why doesn't my regular expression work in NotePad++?
(I'm the OP) I've actually come to agree with the close decision. The reason I did this in the first place was because the Windows help for notepad++ is deficient. But I forgot what I think should be the real test - the Google test. And a search for "notepad++ regex" or "notepad++ regular expression" is Lucky - first pick is accurate documentation. So there's no point in replicating it. Sorry to waste your time!!!

@slhck - I understand - do what you think best. You may be confused- look at the link in the answer. Notepad++ has regex - it's just very quirky. My thought was that many people end up confused by this (certainly I've been multiple times). I thought it would be good to have a post that a Google search will likely hit and clue the searcher that there's a generic issue. The alternative was to go through all the [notepad++][regex] posts and add a comment to each one where this is relevant and hasn't been said already - that's more than I'm willing to volunteer for!

To the down-voter: what's the problem? I'm trying to provide an instant, no-waiting-required answer to all of the questions of this ilk. Is this bad?

@Daniel, I don't think it's right to just copy the whole page - but a summary is likely to omit some reader's particular problem - there are so many little quirks. Thoughts? Do you want to add another answer that reflects what you think should be here?
