Any character . (full stop)
We are looking for a quotation in some text. There are two such in the sample text
if you wish to experiment.
At first attempt you might try
but this will fail because every character after the opening double quote
will be accepted by .
- right up to the end of the line. The next element "\""
(i.e. the closing double quote) will not be found. The result is "String not found".
