:? Hello! Could anybody tell me how to search the following text fragment: "go * * walk" where * means just a word of any length.

I guess it's easy but I got a bit puzzled at regular expression syntax.

Hi Anton,

In your case you may use, for example,
it's alphanumeric char.

So the final expression for you will be:

Search for:
go \w+ \w+ walk

Where \w+ means one or more alphanumeric chars.
