_RegSearch() for binary data too?

3 posts in this topic

Is there a way to use _RegSearch() to search for strings inside of binary data?

Thanks,

That would be pretty complicated. For example, if the text has been binary encoded, how many encodings are you searching for (i.e. ANSI, UTF-8, UTF-16), and how many languages and special characters do you want to support in your search?

You would have to code a search of your own. You could use _RegSearch() to get an array of keys/values to check, then you would have to walk the array, testing each with your own specific requirements for matches.

;)

Thanks. That's what I figured. Oh well... it's a great function nonetheless!
