Wow! This would be amazing!

 

@Joel Brown, please can you make this happen? PCRE?

I might use it if it existed, but I think the request needs to be clarified first:

- Does the regex match words, verses, or whatever the search scope is (verse, chapter, clause, …)? Words would be fast like a normal search, verses much slower because the index won’t help you, other scopes perhaps slower still.

- How would it interact with other search commands and symbols (<AND>, [WITHIN], @), or would they be prohibited? That is, would regex be another kind of search, like Letters, or would it be usable in a Words search?

- How would statistics work? It’s obvious if regexes only match words, but if they match something larger, would statistics be limited to where hits occurred, or would you expect to see the different matches listed by frequency?


Because Accordance already has a powerful and complex search engine, adding regexes seems more complicated than it would be with a less powerful program.
