    1. @ponydude My command line keeps saying quote> but I escaped the quotes that are part of the regex :/

      1. @ponydude Are they in a context where they need to be double-escaped?

        1. @toksyuryel The context that's failing is my shell, so I don't think so.

        2. @toksyuryel I think I figured it out. You can't escape single quotes inside single quotes for some reason.

          1. @ponydude That makes sense. Try double quoting the whole string, in that case, so you can use single quotes inside of it.

            1. @toksyuryel Working on that now. The major problem with that is that it doesn't shield the string from being interpreted by the shell. x|

              1. @ponydude What about single quoting the string and using double quotes inside the string?

                1. @toksyuryel But then it wouldn't match the contents of the file. The file contains single quotes.

                  1. @ponydude Ah. Hm.

                  2. @ponydude Trying to find all plugin hook locations? ;p

                    1. @minti Yeah. It's not going over too well.

                    2. @minti I was using a much simpler regex, but I'm trying to narrow the output down to make it easier to look at.
