I know, this has been asked before (and I have read some answers), but
it still seems worth asking:

I've just run into a regexp matching problem that turned out to be due
the the fact that '.' matches any character except newlines. While
e.g. Perl has similar behaviour, but also a switch to change it, I
have been unable to find out how to do this in Emacs lisp.

The shortest expressions I (and the answers I read) can think of all
use alternation, such as:




Are there any better solutions (without using an additional library,
that is) ... ??

Thanks for any suggestions!
