I can't figure out how to write a regex to find all text in between
certain words. The problem I have is related to line break marks.
These two words belong to different paragraphs and therefore the
text I'm looking for consists of numerous line break or paragraph break marks.
Let say the text, I'm looking for, follows abc123 and goes before
xyz. Of course I can temporally replace all line break marks with
some other character and use a regex like this one for example:
abc123.+xyz. It works but I would like to find a straight way to do it.
There's no need to replace the line breaks: just search for
abc123(.|\n)+xyz instead. This finds one or more of either any
character or a line break bracketed by your sentinel strings. But
no: I don't see any simple way to match an expression across a paragraph break.
I trust this helps.
