Hi all,

I return the following script:

require 'pp'
pp  str.scan(/(q_Chapter.*png)/)


and ruby print out the following--1 element only

>ruby scan.rb
>Exit code: 0

I expect it prints out 2 elements as following.


How do I fix the problem?

problem solved.

add '?' to this line as follows:
pp  str.scan(/(q_Chapter.*?png)/)

>ruby scan.rb
[["q_Chapter1_4.png"], ["q_Chapter1_4_2.png"]]
>Exit code: 0
