The following is an example in Toad 9.7.1

Using a filter like er_[ed]* does not work in 10.1

That filter no longer support regular expressions unfortunately.

Is that a bug or a feature?

Having reg exp support was really nice.

Can it be replaced by 2 or 3 filters, each of which could have some value. I
never had more than 3 in a [] expression.

The Delphi function we used to use for that filter, MatchesMask, does not
support unicode. So I had to switch to MS’s PathMatchSpecW.

This has come up a few times now. I’ll see if I can strong arm it into
working with unicode.

One thing you can do with the new one that you could not do with the old is add
multiple filters separated by semicolons

Thank you. That is just as good, maybe even better for people who hate reg
expressions.

You’re welcome. The old one didn’t really support regex anyway
– just that one thing with brackets and letters in between.

Ahhhh, never realized that.
