Have you tried the singleline flag?

>From the manual:
The flags to use when matching the regular expression. For more information, consult the Perl5
syntax
s : Singleline. Treat the string as a single line of input, using "." to match any character,
including a newline, which normally, it would not match.

Subject: <replaceregexp> to wipe out everything in a file


is there a way to wipe out an entire file?
i just want everything to be blank.

i used the following:

<replaceregexp byline="true">
  <regexp pattern="(.*)"/>
  <substitution expression=""/>

now i have a blank empty file, but there are still
many lines (carriage returns) in that file.

i want to eliminate *everything* so that the only
thing in the file is EOF character, no line returns,
no nothing at all.

does anyone know how to do this?

i tried setting byline=false but it didn't work
