That (3 ms) was just a joke because from run to run it differs between
something about 2200 and 2400 ms.

So I can see no difference at all between Benoît's solution and the
while ... wend loop. Both are about three times faster than the Regexp
and a couple of hundred times faster than Brians solution.
