I have a text document that contains various mark up tags such as
</verse>. It's a list of song lyrics from OpenLP. I want to strip
off all the tags- the <,> and the text between. I know search and
replace with Regular Expressions will do it for me, but I have a
brain block when it comes to Reg Ex. Can somebody please tell me how
to do this?
Search for: <[^>]*>
Replace with: (nothing)
[^>] matches any character except ">".
[^>]* matches zero or more of such characters.
<[^>]*> matches "<", any text not including ">", and ">", i.e.
everything from "<" up to and including the first ">" thereafter.
I trust this helps.
