No, that's wrong. The difference between re.match and re.search is that
re.match is implicitly anchored at the beginning of the search string,
while re.search is not.

No. Read the docs in the "re" module carefully. They're a bit confucing,
I admit, but the examples help you understand what's going on.

The funny thing is that if you use re.match(str, N), where N>0, an
expression starting with "^" will never match -- because "^" matches the
beginning of a string, and you're telling re.match to start beyond that. :-)
