Searching a string using the ‘Find‘ or ‘Find & Replace‘ function in text editors highlights the relevant match (e.g. searching ‘le‘ highlights it inside words such as ‘apple‘, ‘please’ etc). However, some advanced editors such as Notepad++ (I mention Notepad++ in my examples since its my favourite so far!) supports the use of regex, which recently saved me hours of manually replacing strings and numeric values in files containing HTML and JacaScript codes.
