Do you do regex searches for "myvar" as well? A space followed by a newline is just as literal as "myvavar"; you don't need regex for either. The editor probably requires some sort of quoting or escaping for the newline, but quoting is just an external syntax required by the input scanner.
Every now and then I replace <space><newline> with <newline> throughout the source files of the solution, in one single sweep.
Well, sometimes in two or three, maybe even more: Every now and then I manage to create empty lines with spaces up to the indentiation of the neighbour lines. So I often start out with <4 spaces><newline> and click "Replace all in entire solution" until "0 replacements made". Then I change <4 spaces> to <space> and click the button up to three times more. You might say that clicking the same button up to three times in a row imposes such a strain on your index finger that you prefer to save effort by writing a regexp to do the equivalent. I'll bet that executing the regexp would slow down the replacement so that it would take more time to complete than my quick button clicks, even without conting the time for writing the regex and ensuring that it works as intended.
Dunno if it's baked in or an addon I'm using, but the auto-format that runs when I delete/replace the closing } at the end of a file eats end of line white space.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I don't know whether to hit the joke or the rant icon. Or both.
I can't even make a phone call from the phone at my desk. After smashing some buttons, the phone is "booting." I kid you not. It's a VOIP, currently doing a DHCP lookup or whatever. Now it's doing HTTP calls. There's a screen showing what it's doing...still not working....
That is so interesting.
I had to make a call today. I picked up my desk phone (IP phone) and began dialing.
I had pressed 3 or 4 numbers and it wasn't doing anything.
I said (out loud to myself) "Can you not just dial a number on this thing? How do I dial a number?"
Suddenly, all the digits appeared on the screen and then I could hear the next numbers begin making number-pressing sounds.
It's all junk!
Say all you want about our old rotary phones. They worked. Yes, 8s, 9s, and 0s were a pain to wait for while the rotary spun back around, but they worked.
