    Though I don't use padre myself, reading your post mention 'recursive find and replace' made me think .. would it be possible to integrate ack with padre in a simple plugin? http://search.cpan.org/~petdance/ack/ [cpan.org] more horsepower available than anything you'd write yourself, since most of the work is already done. I'm not exactly sure what feature set you're looking for but ack might fit the bill.
    • It's already there.

      I think the ack support could do with some spit and polish, but it's been part of the editor for a long time. It *should* be a plugin, though.

    • Although I appreciate ack, I'm not entirely sure if deep integration is worth it.

      It mainly hinges on how well we can deal with callbacks from Ack back into Padre, and whether the search parameter set up is clean enough.
