Nah, it will not be that bad... I hope. I have quite a lot of demo documents which I want to process correctly. I am not even close to beta testing at the moment, it is pre-alpha.

And for the quick stuff that I do within Sigil, Regex is my bestest buddy. But there are times when I ask too much of him: unforeseen scenarios with nested spans and divs are usually involved when that happens.
I doubt that you do not inspire anybody, your post are doing that.

This was just prickling my mind. I personally am not part of the flamewar. I do understand the points of both and RegEx is too handy in some occasions not to use it. In this case it prickled me to investigate another route and it looks promising so far, although the documentation is really scarce.

I believe it too.
In all the years of using the S&R interface of Dreamweaver it never fails in the mode "search specific elements".
I would love such a feature in Sigil.

And I would love to see an regex interface in Sigil, which allows to perform multiple regex rules in a kind of "batch" process - in combination of a system to save complete rules, where the user could pick the rules he needs.

My mostly missed feature in Sigil in that context is a html analysis tool.
It should list all "occurences" of html elements with its relevant attributes. Than a user has a perfect overview about all the cleaning work which has to be done.

That feature already exists. You can automatically run multiple search & replace actions with Saved Searches.

To be clear: I still think Regex offers the most flexible solution for S&R for end-users. While a parsing S&R engine might be able to handle difficult, nested html better/easier, it's going to be limited to canned (even if slightly customizeable) scenarios by it's very nature. Want a new, highly specialized type of (x)html/xml-smart S&R?... wait for it to be added by the developers in the next version. Want some help with a multi-step regex solution to a particular problem?... ask for help on the forums and try the suggestions out immediately (and maybe pick up a thing or two along the way).

But I think it all just boils down to time and availability. If there was an open-source, highly intelligent, easily customizeable, (x)html-aware, drop-in S&R engine out there... I'm pretty sure it would already be a part of Sigil. And since I'm pretty sure there's not such a plug-n-play beast, it would seem to me that creating such a thing might actually be a bigger undertaking than Sigil itself. So I'm going to continue to use the "Open with" feature if I need to use any kind of complex parsing/editing that I can't get Sigil to do itself.

OK, I will have to reveal how to start more than one action at once. In the user guide such a function is not mentioned.

Actually, it's mentioned under Group Searches in the online help topic that I linked to (which is a part of the 0.7.2 User Guide):

Quote:
Group Searches

You can actually run a group of searches. Each search will be run sequentially.

Simply select a group name and then, for example, run Count All. Or select several non-group entries and run, for example, Replace All.

@Doitsu
Thanks for the hint.
My mistake: I only tried "Find" in version 0.7.3. Than a group search doesn't work. With "Count all" it does.

Edit:
I submitted a bug report:

Today I found a python script, written by an author of the renowned computer magazine c't, which seems to do exactly what I meant.

"Seems", because I've not the knowledge (I'm not a programmer) how to apply such a script to test it.

The script could be find here:
ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/listings/1319-136.zip

May be someone likes my idea for such a functionality inside Sigil.

I'm sure, that the author of the script would give his permission to integrate his script into Sigils code, if he's asked.
His mail address could be find on the top of the listing.





Script:

AFAIK, this functionality already exists:

Also... check out the Sigil Plugins! thread for ideas about "incorporating" external script functionality via the "Open with" feature of Sigil.

The process may be a tad unweildy for those having little experience with terminals, batch/bash scripts, and scripting languages (like python) in general. But it's still beats waiting for "official" functionality that may never come (that's not meant disparagingly towards Sigil in any way).

@Doitsu

This report lists only elements with classes.

For a complete analysis a list of all used elements is neccessary.

Elements without any attributes like e.g. <i>.

Elements with id attributes like e.g. <div id="foo32">

Elements with attributes which are missused for styling like e.g. <div width="100%">

...

The purpose:
The editor should not forget any element "appearance", which can be "normalized", "cleaned", ...

Because you used a BR, the toc (NCX) will use both


In some cases, you might want a different treatment

<h3 title="create your replace template here" > And Leave the original heading text intact
In this case, what code do you use for find field?

Based on examples given in this thread alone, what would you guess it might be? I mean, if you had to just ... for kicks and giggles. Can you at least give it a shot?

Seriously, though ... try. Show us what you've tried that isn't working the way you think it should. People will be more than happy to help. But this popping in every couple of weeks (to your own personal thread) to get handed the specific answers to problems you clearly have no intentions of ever learning how to fix yourself (not even the basics) and then disappearing again until the next problem arises is getting a little old.

How is it that someone who can't be troubled to learn any regex at all, so often finds themselves in situations where they need a complex regex solution?

Take part ... don't just take.
