insource searches with newline within regular expression are impossible
Closed, DuplicatePublicBUG REPORT


The problem is, that there is no possibility to use newline options within regular expressions doing insource searches using Special:Search. Maybe it's forgotten when programming the regex machine.

Solution: You can use the escape sequence "\n" doing a search with newline within regular expression.

It's useful to find and then repair LINT errors and making other corrections that go beyond one source code line.

Thanks a lot,

insource:/foo bar\ncode red/

should find in the source code

foo bar
code red
