Hi all,

I'm looking for a regular expression that say:

match the line that does not begin with the string {s}

now the way i see it ... if my s = "abc" then i will have to look for
(a & b) or (ab & not c) or (abc & not wht_spc) ...

but the longer the s the longer the reg expr ... is there another way to
do this?
