in reply to regex: finding something that doesn't contain a quotation?

Greetings,
This is just a quick suggestion
based on my understanding of your question...

$filecontents =~ /.*?$blah\.([\w-]+)\(([^"]*)\)\s*;/; #not really sure what $blah is holding but #the [\w-] can replace your [0-9a-zA-Z_\-] character class #and \(([^"]*)\) is a greedy way of saying #anything inside of parens that is not a quote.
