Post by Debugger » Fri Oct 19, 2018 4:34 pm

I forgot what regex is:
show all files without extension.

No Regex necessary, just type

with regex:
^[^.]*$

^ = match start of filename
[^.] = match any character except .
* = match preceding element zero or more times (in this case any character except .)
$ = match end of filename.

It does not quite work as expected because it detects folders, and I only want files.

So just type what I said and you get only files without extensions
ext:

But I was asking about regex, because these unnecessary ext: it does not work with another program MasterSeeker!

files:regex:^[^.]*$
works fine in Everything and displays only files as the empty ext: does.
So its a problem in using Master Seeker and not a Everything topic at all.

without:regex:
without:ext:
without:other

simple ^[^.]*$

However, it works. Disable "Include Directories" :lol:
