in thread How to match last character of string, even if it happens to be a newline?

Using \z, I don't seem to need multiline ...

That's because  \z is always the absolute end-of-string anchor; no modifiers apply. I always use  \A \z \Z because they have invariant behavior. For the same reason, I nail down the  ^ $ operators by always using the  /m modifier. (I then use the  ^ $ operators only with newlines embedded within a string.)
