text = "11\n abcd \n22"
answer = text =~ "11.*22" :: <various possibilities>
and have it find the entire string. The default behavior is to stop
matching when it encounters a newline. There is mention in the
Text.Regex.Posix docs of a flag to control this behavior, but it is not
easy to figure out from the docs how to provide flags. The left-hand side
of the =~ is a very complex type.
