I'm trying to develop a pattern to search through all my scripts for a particular subroutine call that does NOT have a particular paramter. For example, I'm looking for "dbConnect" where "fileName" is not a paramter between the parentheses. Such calls may span multiple lines. I'm having difficulty coming up with the pattern that will match:
but not match:
because "fileName" exists in these. Any help on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
