v6 editor replace function

after making a replacement the character counter needs to step ahead or it can enter an endless loop. on my machine, replacing "x" with "xx" for example, causes this.

V 6.003, win 7 x 64

REPLACE

Hi,

I see what you are getting at - if you replace x with xx then the replace mechanism might parse this again and replace xx with xxxx etc. Thanks for pointing this out. I will check the code again. I wll get back to you.

REPLACE

Hi,

As you correctly observed, the character counter didn't allow for multiple replacement of the same character. A simple correction has now been made and is included in version 6.004

The replacement window flickers slightly as each instance of the replacement is shown on screen - basically the whole screen is redrawn each time. At some time in the future I will see what can be done to make all the replacements first and then redraw the screen rather than redraw it each time a replacement is found.
