This is probably a repeated question, but try as I might I was unable
to find something similar in the archives.
I'm trying to develop a regular expression for recognizing a simplified
C-Style string syntax. I need it to be able to handle escape sequences
of the form \x where x is any character including ".
Here's what I'm trying:
When I try to get it to recognize something like:
"I said, \"Hello!\""
It stops at the first quote after the \.
I've used this very same regular expression in a parser generator I
have for C++ and it works just fine.
Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong in the Python Reg Ex world?
Thanks for the comments & help.
