Another way to do it is to use 'filter' to get the text of the line that 
matches your wildcard, and then 'lineOffset' to find that line:

put tScript into tTemp
filter tTemp with ("local*" & tFunctionName & "*")
put lineOffset((cr & tTemp & cr),(cr & tScript & cr)) into tPos

Not sure if 'filter' is faster than 'matchChunk' when dealing with large 
scripts, but I have a feeling it might be...
