Unfortunately, wholematches can't be used, at least for the first 
lineoffset, because there are likely some parameters further in that 
line. The alternative to lineOffset is to use regex.

A truly generic function would need to know whether it searches for 
command or function, because it is possible to have one of each with 
the same name.
