Back in the day, HC listMembers had enormous patience with certain people. They were indulgent. Time will tell.
I have a variable "foo" (remember foo?) containing:
and a script that has:
filter foo with "a*b"
I get empty in foo, when what I am looking for is a substitute for Rinaldi's "fullFind"
Changing the wildcard characters changes nothing. OK, what am I doing wrong?

Hi Craig! Great to see you here. Don't think Cat's here. You should poke
her to join. :)

As you noticed, there's a slight bug in the message box. But when it is
working properly you can click on the stack name, and select the stack
you want it to target from a popup list. That's a very nice feature.

I have only needed an external once in all the years I've been using
Rev, and that was for a very specialized application. All the other
stuff we used to use externals for is now built into the engine. I
really doubt you'll ever need to implement an external. The language has
3 or 4 times as many commands and functions as you-know-what. ;)
FullFind can be replaced with the "filter" command, or by using any one
of the various offset functions. If you choose to use offset, be sure to
use the "skip" parameter or else you will be searching the same text
