%INCLUDE using a pattern

Including a table from a different topic using %!INCLUDE{"topic" pattern="..."}

I want to include a table which is created via CommentPlugin and FormPlugin and hide it inside the including topic with a html comment. Because both Plugins create html comments itself and I can not extract the table with %!STARTINCLUDE% I tried various patterns.

My basic question is, which pattern does match any line of a TML table:
| *sometext* | *nextrow* |
| val1 | text1 |
and so on.

Some of my ideas included the following regexes (these are just the siple ones):

None of them gave me any match in the included topic. As far as I got the Regex syntax right most of them should match the table. Why don't the behave like expected?

Hi there,

I cannot know for sure, but I suspect you need to escape the veritcal bar |. The vertical bar is a special character in a regex (OR).

  • This regex
    matches nothing OR everything OR nothing.

  • This regex
    matches vertical bar followed by everything followed by vertical bar.
