This will only work for a word with a parentheses ( ie. somefunction()

This nicely grabs the "\r".. How can I get around it?

This is super cool!!
So let's take this for example
test= 'fprintf( outFile "leSetInstSelectable( t )\n" )\r\n ("test"
"test1" "foo aasdfasdf"\r\n "newline" "test2")\r\n'
Now I want the ident to pull out 'fprintf( outFile
"leSetInstSelectable( t )\n" )' so I tried to do this?
ident = Forward()
ident << Group( Word(alphas,alphanums) + LPAR + ZeroOrMore(
dblQuotedString | ident | Word(alphas,alphanums) ) + RPAR)
Borrowing from the example listed previously. But it bombs out cause
it wants a ")" but it has one.. Forward() ROCKS!!
Also how does it know to do this for just the first line? It would
seem that this will work for every line - No?
