in thread Bug in script, regex help req extreme urgent

ohk... i didnt knew about this feature that explains like this. Another important point i wish to make, I want to ignore // lines. Suppose somebody writes something like // module OLD(Y, A, B); would my $string not match and make script behavior wrong?? thats why i was trying to give ^module (WHICH MAKE SURE THAT ITS NOT A COMMENT). WHITESPACE AND TABS ARE OK BUT NO // BEFORE matching expression
