What do you like about CFML
Does what it says on the box and a great community out there ;-)

Fast, easy and it would have taken me months to develop some of the stuff I've worked on in other languages.
What other technologies do you use?
Oracle/MSSQL/MySQL/Access, XML, XHTML, CSS, Flash, Flex, CFEclipse, IIS, PHP. Probably more but you get the idea!!
About Me:
Currently working as a Web and Application Developer for The Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland.

I've been in the Web industry for 7 years now with 4 of those being Coldfusion development.

I'm also an active member of the the Scottish ColdFusion User Group and main organiser for our local CF Developer networking events.

Argh, you should have posted :)

It would look something like this:
Find: (<cflocation url="[^"]+") ?/?>
Replace: $1 addtoken="true" />

This would capture anything that was like
<cflocation url="testPage.cfm" />
<cflocation url="testPage4.cfm"/>
<cflocation url="testPage2.cfm">
<cflocation url="testPage3.cfm" >

and add the addtoken="true" to them all

You've intrigued me now. Can you post an example of the tag that needs to be matched and one that does not so I can run some test RegEx's on it?

Hey again James,
Just came across this blog post

The app is here

It actually matches as you are typing your regular expression which seems perfect for someone learning regEx (or just needing to test something out before running it over and over again on the server).

Oh yes, and if you need any assistance with the regular expressions, let me know...I'm no expert, but I manage :)

Most of the regular expressions I'm starting with Eclipse itself. If you do a "Find" (and check the regular expressions checkbox), then press ctrl-spacebar it will bring up all possibilities for regular expressions. I actually had a bit of difficulty understanding what the $1 $2 $3, etc. was for and how to determine what is was replacing when I looked at the CF livedocs, but the hint box in Eclipse was very straightforward, and I got it right away. If there's something else I need though this site was great I haven't used it in a while, but it has quite a few useful items.

<cflocation url="myPage.cfm" addtoken="true" />

(I forgot to add the "result" part to my redo post...sorry for all of the posts)

Sorry, the HTML tag removal got me again...trying again:

Hey James,
Just saw your comment about the cflocation token. Here's something you can try that may work.

I'm guessing that the tags without tokens should be formatted
<cflocation url="myPage.cfm" />
(or something close to that).

A RegEx that would add the addtoken attribute to all of those would be something like:

Find: (<cflocation url="[^"]+") />
Replace: $1 addtoken="true" />

This should take any cflocation tag that only has the url attribute and replaces that with

Hope this helps you out.
