[mkgmap-dev] tag value within regular expression

From Mike Baggaley mike at tvage.co.uk on Tue Jan 25 20:13:59 GMT 2022

Hi Ticker,

I had wondered about using not-contained (although I would prefer to do a case insensitive match, hence my preference for a regular expression).
I was confused by the example in the manual, as it doesn't contain the tag value or name, but have now realised that the example has been truncated.

Hi Mike

Would the tag filter not-contained (4.4.1) do the job?
