Initial Code
Hi All,

Need a help to get the function name and associated line number in a file using perl. 


For example:

Consider file name is a.c and it is having functions definition in the following format


Return type


            Int a,

            Char *b








I need out put in the following format:


Line No : Function_Name



NOTE: Need to consider the case of opening brace “{” of function definition may start immediately after closing parenthesis of function. Ex: func_Name(.., ..) {  as in above it appeared in the new line.


Kindly help me out to solve this problem at the earliest. It’s a requirement in our project.
