Instructions for Classic regular expression syntax

0 votes

If I switch the Regular Expression Syntax from "Perl compatible" to "Classic", where would I find instructions for that syntax? Also, why would someone switch to "Classic"?

The Classic regular expression syntax is more limited in functionality but also means there's less 'Special' characters or escape sequences you need to consider when writing your expression. It's based on the Boost POSIX Extended Regular Expression Syntax.

It's kept more for backwards compatibility with old versions of FileLocator Pro than something that's actively recommended.
