Port frameworks away from QRegExp
Open, Needs TriagePublic


QRegExp is supposed to only exist in Qt6 in a Qt5Support lib, good enough for apps initially, but not for frameworks, most importantly not as part of exported API.

It's still used a lot.

It's used in non-deprecated public API in:

  • ktextwidgets: kfind, kreplace
  • kcoreaddons: kstringhandler
  • ktexteditor: kateregexp, vimode
  • kio: kcoredirlister
