Q57705: Mgrep Can Skip Occurrences of Pattern When Using Mgreplist
Article: Q57705 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.02 | 1.02 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist1.02 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 16-JAN-1990 "Mgrep" may find every other occurrence of a search string when used to search a list of input files defined my the "mgreplist" macro. Mgrep searches all files defined by the mgreplist macro, then writes the location of a match to the <compile> pseudo file. When using either regular expression search patterns or standard search strings, mgrep may post every other occurrence of the matched string to the <compile> pseudo file. This also causes SHIFT+F3 to display every other match in the file being searched. To see the problem, set the mgreplist:="test.dat" where TEST.DAT contains the following: #include1 #include2 #include3 #include4 #include5 #include6 #include7 #include8 #include9 #include10 #include11 #include12 Invoke the mgrep search on the string "include" and then press SHIFT+F3 to view the next match. You will see that only every other occurrence of "include" is found. Also, if you view the <compile> pseudo file it will only contain a list every other occurrence of "include".
