I use regular expressions to find and replace text in some documents.

Im trying to find an Expression like

which finds a string for example like
IMG alt="" src="picture.jpg" width=461 align=baseline height=72>

Now I want to use that found string and save it in the replacement text in a comment like:
img.src.?newpicture.jpg".*?> COMMENT: OLDSTRING

How can I do this?


Enclose your find string in brackets

so you can refer to it using \1:
