in thread Regex problem - (non)greedy?

I expect he'd want "" for the first and "" for the second. As for the third, see my update.

    The first one does not match as the OP contains two spaces at least between 'cd' and 'ghi'.

    Also what would he expect for 'cd cd ghi'?

      He clearly doesn't want the middle "cd" as that's his question.

        But he says the 'EF' would be a random text, so it could be 'cd' as well?

        And what about 'cd accd ghi'?
