Re: $ anchor for string of a whole file

And, shouldn’t /m tell it to include everying, including newlines?

No, the multiline option causes the regexp engine to include newlines in
the ‘.’ character class. Unlike some other languages, I don’t believe it
has any effect on ^ or $.

That is correct–^matches right after a newline and $ right before
it. \A and \Z are beginning and end of a given String, respectively.
