cg> Can this utility eg. find and remove all such 4 lines from 
a marked frame:

<anyString> <space> "cat" <anyString>
<anyString for line 2>
<anyString for line 3>
<anyString> <space> "dog"


Yes, I expect that Regul can do it ... but I've never 
tried a similar problem.

Incidently, if the literals are enclosed with " ", the 
names needn't be enclosed with < >.  Conversely, 
if the names are in < >, then the literals, except for 
the blank, needn't be enclosed.  So these are two 
simpler notations with the same meaning.

String " cat" String EOL
String EOL
String EOL
String " dog"

<String> " " cat <String> <EOL>
<String> <EOL>
<String> <EOL>
<String> " " dog

Gerard has made improvements since the release 
of Babel/Regul which I used last.  Would be best 
to get the improvements but I don't know the 
release status. 

Regards,        ... Peter E.
