I would like to write a custom elisp function that searches for a few variants of unicode text under a cursor and highlights their occurrences in the currently open file.
For e.g. if my text is
helloम् (it ends with bytes
U2350+U2381) the function should search a modified version of the text
hello+U2306) The unicode bytes are always at the end of the word.
I started with a simple elisp function that would print a message if a text that matches my criteria is found and saving the modified string to be searched into a variable:
(defun c-search () "If word under cursor ends with U2350+U2381, search for word+U2306" (interactive) (if (string-match-p "म्" (thing-at-point 'word)) (setq z (replace-regexp-in-string "म्$" "ं" (thing-at-point 'word))) (message "Should search %s" z)))
Nothing gets printed when I evaluate this function. However, the following function that searches and replaces the string works fine:
(defun rrx () (interactive) (setq z (replace-regexp-in-string "म्$" "ं" (thing-at-point 'word))) (message z))
How can I fix function
c-search to perform a search for the string saved in variable
