Sigil and Regex

As a regex expert, I'm Emperor of the North. I usually use RegexBuddy from JGSoft which allows me to code a little, test a ltiile, and learn a lot.

Will someone tell me why the following PERL expressions will not work in Sigil? What changes are needed to make them work?

Find all:
Code:
[^~]+?
Find number:
Code:
[\dixvlcdm]+
All help accepted and appreciated.

What about:
# Non-greedy matching cannot be applied to individual quantifiers. Expressions like abc*?dd are not allowed. Use the Minimal matching option to set minimal matching on the whole expression.
(the above taken from the manual)

I have a question regarding yours
I ahve the following code
Code:
  <table width="569" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="7" class="sgc-2" bordercolor="#000000" border="1">
    <col width="553" />

    <tr>
      <td width="553" valign="top">
        <h1>СЕКУНДЕРЕН КАРИЕС</h1>
      </td>
    </tr>
  </table>
.... </h1>
I what to make a search that finds <table and the FIRST </h1> stops right there and goes to the </table> in which the </h1>.
That is what the manual says:
Use the Minimal matching option to set minimal matching on the whole expression.
So what is minimal matching, can someone help me here, I fiddled with lots of different staff, but I always want to end up with s/t like [\s|.]*? which appears not to be allowed...
I want s/t like this <table [\s|.]*?<h1>( [\s|.]*?)</h1>( [\s|.]*?)</table>, but cannot figure out the right syntax for Sigil
Thanx in advance...

<table ((\s|.|\>)+)<h1>((\s|.|\>)+)</h1>((\s|.|\>)+)</table> will do my trick.
And check minimal matching down left, the answer was much easier than I thought, sought hours in google to find what exactly minimal matching meant
