I use the non-greedy version as a matter of course for its reliability
and because I need not consider side effects as much as with the greedy
version. (And thiking about side effects tends to be about 90% of the
work in writing search and replace statements.) But I do appreciate
that's the sloppy thinking of a bloated Microsoft programmer and it
lacks any beauty.
But then an engineer's solution to anything tends to be ugly to look at
and and in defense I can say that refining a quick one-off hack for
files of normal length is seldom worth the effort in overall time.
