RobertWG Apr 3, 2014 at 10:34 AM Edited Apr 3, 2014 at 10:38 AM I am searching for the regular expression: ``v[24].0`` and trying to replace it with a line set from a batch file. This works fine in the GUI but from the command line there is a backslash inserted after the number, so for example with replacement text of: ``v4.0`` the result is: ``v4\.0`` If I try to quote the dot in the replacement with backslash I get three slashes in the result Here is the command line used: ``"C:\tools\fnr.exe" --cl --dir "C:\Test" --fileMask "TestProj.vbproj" --useRegEx --find "v[24].0" --replace "v4.0"`` mrforsythexeter Apr 22, 2014 at 12:04 PM Edited Apr 22, 2014 at 12:04 PM if using regEx, it appears the replace is escaped automatically (for reg ex chars), unless you pass the parameter --useEscapeChars ericpopivker May 6, 2014 at 11:04 AM Hi, Thank you for reporting this issue.
