antology 2.0.7
Chainable reader


A filter reader that replaces all matches of a regular expression with a replacement string.

The pattern search is stream-oriented, not line-oriented, i.e. matches are found even across line boundaries. Thus the pattern typically enables (?m) (multi-line mode) and/or (?s) (dotall mode).

This filter reader is semantically almost equivalent with

    <filetokenizer />

, but is much more efficient in many cases, because the <filetokenizer /> always reads the entire content into memory, while <replaceAll /> processes the content in a "sliding" manner which requires only very little memory if the regex matches relative short sequences.
