How do I pull all the words from a line between the two words 'from' and 'by'
when I have NO IDEA what's in there, but I know they are all in one line.
To make it more difficult. 'by' is optional...
I want all the stuff inside.
Initially I'm thinking
/from (.+?) (?:by (.+?))?/
I can negate a character with [^b] to mean not-'b'
but can I negate a word?
