Hi,

I've got this:

string = "start {{blah {{ }} outside\n{{ {{ }}\n}} bye"
pre = Regexp.escape("{{")
post = Regexp.escape("}}")

string.split(/#{pre}(.*?)#{post}/).each do |p|
  p p
end

which prints:
"start "
"blah {{ "
" outside\n"
" {{ "
"\n}} bye"

which is close to what I want.  I really want:
"start "
"blah {{ "
" outside\n"
" {{ }}\n"
" bye"

Is there a way to do such a thing with a regex, or do I need to resort
to a scanning technique, keeping track of the nested elements?

thanks,
