Feature requested - Add "Whole words only" to Pydev Search
To be used when not using regular expressions of course. I would find it very useful.
Couldn't it be implemented simply enough using the regex feature?

btw, it's also lacking in eclipse's File Search, is that the reason it's lacking from Pydev Search?

    Yes, right now the PyDev search is almost a copy of the eclipse file search (but properly filtering files), and I do have plans to make an improved Python search to replace that one (the 'whole words only' is already in my TODO list for when I get it).

    Anyways, for now you can use the regexp search to attain the same result with the '\b' (i.e.: \bsearch_string\b)
