Wild Card in PopMan Rules!!!!!

Hi Christian

I know it will takes some programing to do to my feature request but is is possible to integrate a "wild card" in POPMAN RULES where you substitute a character ("wild card") for alpha/numeric character?

Yes, I think this is possible, but we need some different notation to distinguish a "normal" search from this wildcard search.

Any ideas about that? Note, that I want to use 'single quotes' to allow word based search.

Hi Christian,

Thanks for the prompt reply. Yes a single quote ' is a very good idea and may I suggest that non alpha/numeric or special character like "` OR ~ OR % OR ^ OR * OR %" might be a good replacement for single search.
