Thank you for the very useful utility.

I found an issue with processing escaped names. Escaped names end with whitespace, which can be a newline. vrename does not recognize the case of a newline. I have a attached a small example. While the strange line breaks certainly not common, they are created by the Cadence netlist writer.

I worked around this issue by appending a space to every line in the verilog file.

Indeed. On testing this also found and fixed some problems with converting escaped to non-escaped and vice-versa.

Fixed in git and 3.464.
