Hi List,

how can I write a regexp that acts like e.g.

,------
| ".*?"
`------


BTW looks wrong. .* might much nothing, if non-greedy it remains
nothing (?)

But it still seems valid to protect against greedyness?


Coming upon evaluating this, cursor at start of "asdf":

(progn (looking-at ".*")(message (match-string-no-properties 0)))asdf

==> asdf

(progn (looking-at ".*?")(message (match-string-no-properties 0)))asdf

==> ""
