    I know you can use n to match a newline, but how do you match either newline OR EOF ?

    I want it to match all lines, including the last line, which have some specific text followed by either newline or EOF. For example, I can use “sometextn”, but this won’t match on the last line.

    I didn’t mention it in my original post, but I want to replace the newline, where present. For example, suppose I have three lines:


    line1
    line2
    line3

    There is a newline character after “line1” and “line2”, but not after “line3”. I want to use a Find/Replace regex to convert it into the following:

    line1A, line2A, line3A

    My Find regex would be something like

    ([[:alnum:]]+)n

    and the Replace regex would be

    1A, 

    but this does not produce want I’m after due to it not matching the last line, so the end result is:

    line1A, line2A, line3

    That is, no “A, ” after “line3”.

    So, I was hoping for a way to match either a n or EOF, and replace the n, but not the EOF (as that’s obviously just a virtual char).

    I can’t reproduce what you are claiming in this case.
    I’ve tried with both unix-LF and windows-CRLF files.

    AString
    ANotherString
    YetAnotherString
    EvenMoreString

    This Search: ([[:alnum:]]+)n
    Replace: 1,

    Results in:

    AString, ANotherString, YetAnotherString, EvenMoreString

    Thanks CrashNBurn! The last regex is what I’m after

    ([[:alnum:]]+)($n|$)
