Finding variable assignments

Leave a comment

When searching through an entire codebase for a variable it is often useful to limit the search results to those instances where the variables is assigned a new value (or perhaps when the variable is used IN an assignment). This can be achieved with the following regular expressions…

Find assignments

MyVariableName[ \t\r\n\v\f]*=[^=]

Find usage in an assignment

=[^=][ \t\r\n\v\f]*MyVariableName
