Ah, good! Do you have an example of the commented-out stanzas? I suspect the regex can be modified to manage these exceptions.

    yes, most start with "//" and I have a few with "#"

    //zone "" { // type slave; // file "old/combined/"; // masters { //; // }; //};

      Try the following regex:


      In addition to accommodating for the # and / characters in the zone stanzas, it handles the ; at the end of the masters' IP/domain name.

      The last character sets:

      [\s#\/]*([a-zA-Z0-9.-]+)[\s#\/;]* ^ ^ ^ | | | | | + - Character set found immediately after I +P/domain name | + - Character set allowed in IP/domain name + - Character set found immediately before IP/domain name


        Thanks much for all your help today.
