I have a file that contains all ISO3 countries, like:
Code: Select all
ABW Aruba
AFG Afghanistan
AGO Angola
AIA Anguilla
ALA Åland Islands
and it should be changed into:
Code: Select all
<option>ABW Aruba</option>
<option>AFG Afghanistan</option>
<option>AGO Angola</option>
<option>AIA Anguilla</option>
<option>ALA Åland Islands</option>
How can i do that using ctrlr+R ???

I am using WIN10 and Rapid PHP 2016

In Search & Replace Options, enable "Regular expressions"

As "Search for:" enter this: ^([\d\w ]*)
As "Replace with:" enter this: <option>\1</option>
