Regex Question

Hi!

I want to parse a file that looks like this:

a0001: basbasdb
asbddsb
asdbasdb
abasbd
a0002: fffff
ffff
ffffff
ffff

a???? should be the key and the following lines should
be the value of a dictionary.

My solution looks like this:

regex=re.compile(r'(?:^|\n)(\w\d\d\d\d):((?:.(?!\n\w\d\d\d\d:))*)',
re.DOTALL)
matches=regex.findall(content)
for match in matches:
    print match

I think there is a better solution than this, don't you?

thomas
