Hello i ´ve got a little problem: I ´ve this text: and I need to parse
it. So i wrote this:

patternNode = re.compile("""
# Node (\w*).*
(.*)""", re.MULTILINE)

with open("test.msg", "r") as file:
    testData =

for Node in re.findall(patternNode, testData):
    print "Node:", Node[0]
    print Node

but it prints only one line from text. If i am using re.DOTALL it
wouldn´t print anything.. So don´t you know whre the problem is?

Sorry for my English - it´s not my native language...
