yooMatch brings you the power to search and manipulate text in FileMaker using pattern matching with regular expressions.
For those new to pattern matching, regular expressions offer an extremely powerful and concise way to describe what you’re looking for. Once you get acquainted with using regular expressions, you’ll never be able to do without them again.
Of course, yooMatch is very good at doing the traditional sort of find & replace operations that everyone is familiar with. What is most notable, however, is the simplicity with which yooMatch can find things that would be nearly impossible to find without the power of regular expressions.
Users of yooMatch will learn how to easily describe even complex patterns with regular expressions, and will be pleasantly surprised at how quickly it becomes second nature.
yooMatch uses the same popular syntax for regular expressions as the Perl programming language. Using Perl compatible regular expressions ensures that users of yooMatch will find that their fluency in regular expressions translates well between FileMaker and other settings.
As your familiarity with yooMatch grows, you will be amazed by the infinite variety of ways to use it, and the fundamental way in which it extends your ability to do meaningful work in FileMaker.
If you work with text in FileMaker, yooMatch may quickly become your single most indespensible tool for getting the job done.
