'Тест' is not a regular expression, just uncheck 'Regular expression'

Regular expression filter:
. any character
c+ match character c one or more times
c* match character c zero or more times
c? match character c zero or one time
^ start of line
$ end of line
| or
(string){n} match string n times
(abcd) subexpression
[aei0-9] match a,e,i and 0..9
[^aei0-9] anything but a,e,i and 0..9
\w matches a-z,A-Z,0-9 and _
\W any non alphanumeric character
\d digits 0-9
\s whitespaces
\. dot
\+ plus
\* asterisk
\( left parenthesis
\) right parenthesis
(?i) ignore upper-/lowercase (default in FC)
(?-i) case-sensitive matching
\A start of string
\Z end of string

Thank you for your answer.

I tested this on online site dedicated to check regular expressions and it's working.
You have to understand that I used the word just for testing, actually I am going to use regular expressions with all oportunities tha they can give, but result wiil be the same.

I don't know what but something is broken in free commander in this part. You can check on the site that my expression can work.

Code: Select all

Тест ещё текст
И ещё какой-то текст

Timon, I read this and did it before.
I can`t understand what do you try to explain me.

I made simple example with searching among two files with russian and english text.
On the picture we can see that with English version all is working quite normal.

Why can`t free commander do just the same with Russian text?
And we have Regular expression pattern error with Russian version only.

I have the same problem with searching files named by russian letters using regular expression.

Should I create new topic?
