Really? Are you sure? Any explanation as to why \b doesn't work for me right now? Does the use of this search feature require permission that you have but I don't?

    You are mixing terms. I didn't say you could type '\b' in the search box and have it work. I said that there was a way, using regex, that one can check for word boundaries. This was in reply to the statement "There is no regex capability which would allow you to specify e.g. word boundaries.".

    There certainly is such a regex capability. There is not, however, a way to use that capability in the current incarnation of Super Search. The reason for this is explained by tye in a node below.

      I'm not sure what terms you think I'm mixing. I stayed on-context. You, by abandoning context, have brought a lot of heat and confusion to this thread.

      The reason for this is explained by tye in a node below.

      I know. I discussed it at length with tye and others in the cb before posting my previous replies. Even so, I tried to phrase it so as to give you the maximum BOD.
