    If there are no other paren phrases present, this will do it. If there are, we can exclude them too. ^!Replace ^.*(?= (.+ )$) ARSW Regards, John

      Subject: [Clip] Keep only text in round brackets


      Hi everybody

      I haven't written clips in quite a while, so please help oil my rusty clip
      gears.

      I want to iterate through a text file, and remove from it text outside
      round brackets.

      Eg.

      Ground (GC401)

      I want to delete Ground and keep what's in brackets.

      Sometimes the lines are longer but the bracketed expression is always at
      the end of the line.

      Will appreciate,

      Piotr

      Thanks John, I figured that a regex could do it as well. Regards, Piotr ... [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
