inverse search

I have often found myself wishing to search large files for the next line
which doesn't match a regexp. Finally, today I wrote a function for it.
Here is my humble contribution.

(defun inv-search (regexpr)
     "search down for the first line not matching a regular expression.
Note the
    regexp will automatically be anchored to the beginning of the line. "
     (interactive "MRegexp: " regexpr)
     (while (looking-at regexpr)
            (forward-line 1)) )
