budik_je_vypnuty has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear holy monks, I have a *.h file with C function declarations like this:

const char main ( int foo, char abc)

I tried to match all of them with this regex:

@all_functions = ( $hole_h_file =~ m/^ *[\w ]+\s*\*?\s*[\w]+\s*\(?[\w +\*;,.]+\s*\)/mg );

But that doesnt seems to work :/ How to improve my regex?

    Use the /s modifier to match across lines
