This action will trigger the search overlay for the current tab. It accepts a typed pattern string as its parameter, allowing for Regex, CaseSensitiveString and CaseInSensitiveString as pattern matching types.

The supported regular expression syntax is described here.

local wezterm = require 'wezterm'
local act = wezterm.action

return {
  keys = {
    -- search for things that look like git hashes
    {key="H", mods="SHIFT|CTRL", action=act.Search{Regex="[a-f0-9]{6,}"}},
    -- search for the lowercase string "hash" matching the case exactly
    {key="H", mods="SHIFT|CTRL", action=act.Search{CaseSensitiveString="hash"}},
    -- search for the string "hash" matching regardless of case
    {key="H", mods="SHIFT|CTRL", action=act.Search{CaseInSensitiveString="hash"}},

You may now use wezterm.action.Search("CurrentSelectionOrEmptyString") to have the search take the currently selected text as the item to search.

The selection text is adjusted to be a single line.
