So since Im going to share my pain, did you know that Windows 11 updated notepad?
And it’s BROKEN.
Here I have a simple file, It’s very MS-DOS like and I want to change it to Unix. Yes I could use SED but I have NOTEPAD so let’s change the backslash to a forward slash. Something notepad.exe could do going back to 1985.
And it’s become a bunch of spaces. Great. Check the search/replace and yeah it’s gone and done it’s own thing.
And you may think wow thats broken but come one it’s not *that* bad. And you’d be wrong. So very very wrong.
My next attempt got me this.
I don’t even know what the hell happened. I guess I should be happy the slashes changed, but at what cost? AT WHAT COST?!
My god Microsoft how could you fuck up notepad this badly?
And yes, I blame Canada!
