Is it Possible to perform regular expression operations on the "Find" from a previous regular expression search/replace?
I have encountered many circumstance where it a specific string is needed to isolate the proper information. I don't always want to change all of the search string, only part of it.
For Example: When I am searching for "Vol 1" in the album field, I desire to leave the "Vol " portion of the search string along, and only process the number, and then only when the number consists of a single digit. I can't really assume this sequence will occur only at the end of the text in the album field, so using the "Trailing Edge Anchor; $".
This leads to all sorts of possible applications for conditional test of a string based on it's length or the length of a substring.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem?
