Find in Files

Hi all,

I have just switched from VS 6.0 to .NET and I am happy to see many features
that makes my work faster.
Many of them I "invented" before ;) , but apparently not only me.
However not everything is perfect.
I need one function and maybe it can be done somehow, if not this is my
proposal for a new feature.
Find In Files should have an option "Do not find in comments".
Do you think it can be done using regular expressions ?
With '//' yes, but in multiline /* */ I think not.
And if I want to find some pieces of code and comment it out, it would be
great to find only in code, not comments.
