A typical line in a
TAGS file looks like this (note use of special characters
(defvar copyright-owner user-full-name^?copyright-owner^A213,7296
find-tag-regexp will search the entire line. But I want to restrict my searches to just the 2nd column, i.e.
copyright-owner. In particular, for this example I want to avoid false positives for searches of
user-full-name from finding this entry.
How can I restrict
find-tag-regexp to just the matching part of the line and not the whole line?
