I want to search for the following string: A hyphen not surrounded by spaces. Therefore I tried the following pattern:
[^ ]-[^ ].
But this pattern finds a hyphen preceded by a letter and followed by a newline character, too.

How to exclude the newline character? I tried
[^ ]-[^ \n]
but that does not work. Why? And how to search for this?

Thank you in advance!
