Pattern Matching Question

Post by BHeckle »

I am trying to match lines with the following phrase
ENTER(NAME);
where NAME is an arbitray text string.

I tried the following patterns and only got the last one to match. I am confused as to the why.

ENTER\(+\);
ENTER\(+\)\;
ENTER\(+\)+
ENTER\(+\)*

Thanks,

Why do you have a '+' on its own?

Try

ENTER\(.*\);
