i've got a whole file to scan...but can't get neatly get the last
occurance with...
  .scan(/(^A.*?)^A/m){|a| stops<<$1} ...yes i know that last occurance
is not scanned
  because it is succeeded with ^Z line....that's the complication....
  A......
  M.....
  d....
  A....
  r....
  f....
  A....
  .... etc to the last A group....
  A.....
  c....
  t....
  Z.....

   note each ^A group can end only with a new occurance of another A
record or the Z record.which
   is the last record of the file....So? how do make a more eligant Reg
expression to cover this
   situation?
