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

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.

[ambrus]: 1nickt: in theory, it shouldn't hurt the electronics, but also could temporarily cause problems until it dries, and the inside of the keyboard doesn't dry quickly, because it's closed.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: that's the theory. the theory is also that it should have dried by Sunday morning, but it didn't. so I dunno.
[ambrus]: I'll try today evening if it works now.
