I get plenty of questions that I ask here ignored, but I don't fret - I read
some more, figure a way of asking the question differently and try again.
In this particular case, I read the manual thoroughly - but got confused
because I was asking a "not" match question. So I googled around to try and
find the answer, but no luck.
I then came here to ask the question - and I tried to ask it in such a way
that it would be an interesting puzzle for someone who thought they really
understood regex's. (should that be regex\'s :-))
