Re: Scanning a line for a code - then using that code to update the related line.

Hi there, TextPipe isn't designed to solve the problem this way. In principle, consider that TextPipe processes your entire file with the first filter, before passing it into the next filter.

Re: Suggestion: Provide Unicode to Perl Escape Codes filter

Does PCRE need to care if a character is two bytes or not? Can't it just match the sequence? Isn't it an "all or nothing" literal comparison?

Re: Suggestion: Provide Unicode to Perl Escape Codes filter
