    Searching for all occurrences from a CRLF to a :


    favorite

    I would appreciate some help with a simple expression.
    Here is a sample piece of text I want to search through.

    Line one.
    Line two: continued on.
    Line three.

    Line four: and now we continue.
    Line five.

    I want to find everything from the start of a line to a : The expression should select. Line two: Line four:
    Can someone please help me build this? I currently have ^[^:]+: but this is not working as it is finding everything up to and including the first :.
    Thanks for any help!

    I suggest you have this thread moved to the regexp forum.
    There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
