Not sure I understand what you mean. The match attribute matches on a 
single line, not across multiple lines. I need to match code like this:

a = x"abc2

This is usually handled by using the "begin" and "end" attributes:

   begin = 'x"';
   end = '"';

But everything in between the double quotes will match.
