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

Ah - thanks for the clarification...

I could continue to live with the old behaviour - twould just be nice if 
it were mentioned in the style manual because it is not that intuitive. 
If it is changed, that's fine with me too.

I just tried - I can also do:
name ~ '.*\(.*\).*' { set name='${name|subst:"(=>"}'; set 
name='${name|subst:")=>"}'; echo "namehasbracket=1" }
so that's the easiest (I was looking for closing parentheses only anyhow).

Thanks a lot...
