Multiline Regex

Hello all,

I am trying to split a long regex into different lines. I am aware that string macros can be called with triple quotes. However this introduces a newline at the end. Any way of avoiding this?

Perhaps you’d like regex “comment mode” where non-significant whitespace and comments are allowed within the regex string. This is enabled with the x suffix to the r string macro:

julia> match(r"(aa|   # a comment
                cc)"x, "bb")
RegexMatch("bb", 1="bb")

Yes, this solves exactly the issue (also for the triple quotes). Thank you!
