APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Inside a module, if you attempt to use a regular expression in
    the Find and Replace dialog, the "Replace All" and "Replace in
    Object" options become unavailable.
    
    This was a change that was implemented back in the Opal release
    to prevent an overly powerful regex (example given was ".*")
    causing untold trauma to the user if they accidentally hit
    REPLACE ALL. Martin thinks the reasoning although sound is
    overly restrictive.
