OK say I have lines of the form:
field1 "field2" "field 3"
"field1" field2 "field 3"
field1 "field2" field3
you get the idea...
How do I read each field into an array?
(while removing any quotes at the same time
would be a bonus).
A python answer would be perfect,
but I can convert the equivalent
a perl solution very easily I guess.
What I have in python now is:
fields = re.split('[ ]+|"([^"]*)"', record)
And this is OK except there are empty and
null fields returned. I'm sure there is
a more elegant re to acheive this?
