Exactly. Thank you for pointing this out. Then I do the following
testing in the scratch buffer:
some 30
word 31 *
* This is the position of point.
M-:
(while (re-search-backward "[[:digit:]]\\{2\\}" nil t) (let ((x
(match-string 0))) (delete-backward-char 2) (insert (format "%d" (1+
(string-to-number x))))))
Then I obtained the following in scratch:
;; This buffer is for
tex100999897969594939291908988878685848382818079787776757473727170696867666564636261605958575655545352515049484746454443424140393837363534333231
Any hints for this strange result?
