Question Replacing "function(x)" with "x" using sed/awk/smth


Subject says it all.





I can find the matches with the regular expression "function(.*)", but how do I grab the .* part of the match and send it to the output? So far I've only been able to use the entire match (not very useful if you want to remove instead of add something).

I appreciate your effort, but it's been 6 years.
In the mean time I've learned a thing or two about linux, so I could've answered my own question ;-)
