Thread: grep in Word X?

never used vi - i grew up on windows (i'm actually 15 now, so when i started on computers in 94 or so it was DOS 6 or so + WIN3.1). Still, vim looks like it has a fairly nice help feature, though for someone who's never used it it seems a bit counterintuitive - but i digress. (why hjkl instead of arrow keys? are you telling me they had 0 arrow keys in the 70's?)

textedit has the same problems as word - no regular expressions (as far as i can tell). I can't use any other text-editing programs because i'll them lose the formatting - and besides, with the special control chars and stuff, the line-break not followed by another line-break pattern i'm looking for don't exist anymore.
