I’ve several developer tools on Android Pie, which I use via Samsung Dex (desktop). The text editor is “QuickEdit” and I have a Userland Linux installation. The later has limited functions.
I am looking for a text editor with full regex (regular expressions) funcationality, for example comparable to BBEdit for OSX. Android’s QuickEdit has a limited regex, in particular the
^ is absent for the beginning of line character and I’m yet to understand the retrieval from a () capture.
Is there anything within the Android universe that could improve on “QuickEdit”, or is it a case of using e.g. perl oneliners or sed?
