Hmm - yes, there should. This should fix it:

OK, I'm trying to get my alerts file setup using the macros and I'd like 
to try and summarize all the findings from list postings into a single 
procedure.  Let me know if this is correct, or at least help steer me in 
the right direction.  So far:

1. I've used the non-tested, experimental shell script to convert my 
bbwarnsetup.cfg host groups into hobbit macros.  An example of one host 
group converted is as follows:


2. I applied the patch above to do_alert.c

Now I want to put that macro I got from the shell script into action. 
It should look something like this, right?


or better


But that "(.*)" looks funny to me.  All it should represent in that case 
is a number like 507, 405, etc., or something that perl could handle 
with a /\d{3}/.  The end result needs to be a hostname like 
"sys452p.nandomedia.com".  What would be the correct syntax, or is that 
indeed the correct syntax?
