[xsd-users] Using regular expressions

I am having problems with regular expressions. I am trying to parse the
XSD files supplied by California to support efiling of payroll tax
returns. There are several files that reference each other but also
reuse some element names. These cause conflicts when generating the C++
code. I tried using regular expressions and got at least as far as
generating all the C++ files. Now compiling these files generates errors
of conflicting class names. So I'm not sure the regular expressions did
what I thought.
Here is an example of what I am trying to do:
The files StateWH.xsd and StateUI.xsd both contain an element called
AmendedReturnElect among many others. So after much trial and error I
came up with this regular expression in the hopes that all classes in
the StateWH file would have WH_ prepended to the names.
--anonymous-regex ,.*StateWH.xsd .* StateWHType/.*,WH_$0,
But I don't see any evidence of this in the StateWH.hxx file. Without
this xsd would not generate the .cxx or .hxx files. It just complained
about name conflicts so the regex did something but I don't know what.
The way I read the regex I used is
in any file matching *StateWH.xsd
any element name starting with StateWHType
add WH_ to the start of the name
So what did I really do and how do I get this to actually change the
class names with a few prepended characters so I avoid the conflicts?
