[mkgmap-dev] How can I test if "(" or ")" is part of name

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Mon Jul 28 09:33:25 BST 2014

I have a problem that I cannot escape brackets when trying to find out 
if they are part of the name...

name ~ '.*('    { }
is not working of course. However ^ is not able to escape a bracket...
name ~ '.*^('    { }

Is there any way to find out if there is a () in a name?
(the reason for this is that I want to know in Japan if the name is only 
in Japanese, or in Japanese (English).

keep on biking and discovering new trails
