I am not yet a big friend of reegxp.. and I don't actually know if I 
should use it or any other function
 but I'd like to know the easiest path to do the following :

I get a string   person = 'Clara Mint" which is a full name
and I would like to find the object "id" in a collection using this  
full name :

people = [ ["id" => "1", "first" => "Jack", "last" => "Johnson"], ["id" 
=> "2", "first" => "Ben", "last" => "Kenneth"], ["id" => "3", "first" 
=> "Ken", "last" => "Olsen"], ["id" => "4", "first" => "Howard", "last" 
=> "Wong"], ["id" => "5", "first" => "Clara", "last" => "Mint"], ["id" 
=> "7", "first" => "Che", "last" => "Guevara"]]

any hint to start ?
