Hi All
I am learning about regexp right now, I read at
http://www.regular-expressions.info/dot.html the following

The dot matches a single character, without caring what that character is. The only exception are newline characters. In all regex flavors discussed in this tutorial, the dot will not match a newline character by default. So by default, the dot is short for the negated character class [^\n] (UNIX regex flavors) or [^\r\n] (Windows regex flavors).

The question is how to match any character through multiple lines. I.e. START..multiple lines .* END

Thx for any help
