I would like to replace the following from a longer string.

<td >
/some/path/to/a/file/fileA.x  [<a href="special:read('/some/path/to/a/file/fileA.x')">Open</a>]

Open in new window

/some/path/to/a/file/fileA.x is a dynamic file name and it is comes from $file in the code. Then rest is static.

Can you please tell me how I should write the regexp?

So, the pattern is like this:

<td >
$file  [<a href="special:read('$file')">Open</a>]

Open in new window
