No. If it worked line-by-line, it would produce more results. It is not producing the expected matches because it *is* considering the previous line in negative lookbehind, when I don't want or expect it to. Thus it throws out results that should match. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
