in reply to RegExp Help Needed

It depends on how robust you need to be. If you don't care about things like `(that "smarts (especially like this)!")', you could do:

s/"(?![^(]*\))/"/g

If you really need to have it balance correctly with escaped or quoted parens, you'll probably want to look at a module (I've heard good things about Text::Balanced and I suspect it could help here, but having never worked with it I'll defer to others).

[marto]: hmm, there are several universities and colleges handy that I'd have thought would offer such services, given this is out of term time, I've no experience of paying for venues :)
[LanX]: OK ...
[LanX]: I have no idea how Mark scouted, giving that he lives in London ... but I think he mentioned his wife being Scottish
[marto]: ah, so this is payback :P
[LanX]: problem with booking venues is that you only know the number of participants a week in advance. ..
[marto]: I guess most cities have areas similar to this, I tend not to mind personally, but would not go out of my way to head down that way
[marto]: it'll probably be fine.
[marto]: LanX: I appreciate that, it's honestly a difficult thing, a fine balance
[marto]: I'm sure it'll be fun :)
[marto]: of course I can take you to some of the best/worst bars in Glasgow ;)
