I had a need to search for the number of carriage returns that exist in a text file. This is a carriage return only and not CR+LF combination. I opened up the text file in EmEditor version 14.5.3, opened up the find dialog, checked off:
Use Regular Expressions
Move to Start/End of Document
For search criteria, I entered: \r
When I click either find next or find all, I get really unusual results. It stated that 8,984 matches were found. This number is incorrect, since there are roughly 134 carriage return characters in the file.
