Hi, I have an unexpected behaviour with pcregrep at least from version 8.30
until the last one: \A doesn't only anchor to the start of the subject but also
at the start of a line.
here is the command line and output:
pcregrep -nM --buffer-size=4M '\A\s++<\?' test.php
1: <?php
7:

<?php

whereas it should only return
1: <?php

Thanks guys
