I'm the Grumpy Old Ape sometimes answering C++ questions on Stackoverflow.
Usually you will find me in the C++ Lounge of the Stack Overflow chat.

I occasionally retweet something on my Twitter account, and I'm known to even generate my own tweets once in a while.

comment How to find an identifier in Eclipse that's only preceded by white space?
@zx81: I do not have infinite lookbehind. I hacked around this by doing (\s){0,1000} instead. For me, since I only search reasonably formatted human-written source code, this is good enough.

Ok, the search is finished. Searching for (?<=^\s*)ident took forever (almost 10mins, whereas other patterns finish in <5secs), but it did find all occurrences and it captured only ident, so it is what I was after. Thanks!

Your second idea yells Illegal/unsupported escape sequence near index 6 at me. (That goes away when I use \s, but that takes forever and seems to miss occurrences.) And I do not want to capture leading whitespace, neither newlines nor anything else.

@hwnd: This doesn't find anything in Eclipse.

This will not capture empty lines in front of ident, but it does capture other whitespace.

@arshajii: Eventually, I might. Right now it's mainly intellectual curiosity.
