Wild Card search and replace

The wild card search and replace is very handy, except when searching for the wild card characters ( "?' and "*") themselves. There must be an escape character to allow such searches.

Would one of you folks enlighten me?

I don't think there's an escape character for wildcard matching, but using a character group surely provides the same effect.

"aa[?]" would match against "aa?" but not "aaa". Same thing goes for "[*]".

Thank you, sir. I'll give it a try.
