Actually, i wasn't complaining at all. Rather inquiring as to what it is about the ? that makes the expression non-greedy back when I was still first tackling regexes. That said, I fail to see what .? would accomplish. It would match 0 or 1 non-newline characters, which has nothing to do with the OP. Perhaps you can expand on you thinking?
