I am stuck with a simple Reg Exp. I want to do this:


meaning to scan the multiline string $body, find __START_STYLE__, find 
__END_STYLE__ and store any and all characters between them in $2.

I can't get it to work. The metacharacter . matches anything BUT line 
feed, but the above expression does NOT match what I need, which is: any 
character, including any and all characters.

any ideas?
