Balance parentheses or regexp query

Post by Kaveh Bazargan » 2005-07-29 06:39:46

I am an old-time Nisus user (version 1), and happy to be making a return visit!

Is it possible to balance parenthses?

I have expressions like this:


I need a way (preferably with regexp) to select this pattern, which may contain any number of nested braces. It should recognize the last closing brace as the end of the expression.

I remember I used balance parenthesis before, but regexp would be better as it can be embedded in a perl script. Any hints welcome.
