Hello all,

I am struggling with something and I have yet been able to find anything
that may help me.

I have a string like follows:

string = "\"bloggs, Joe (JBloggs, INFO)\" joebloggs, \"bloggs, Bill
(BBloggs, INFO)\" billbloggs"

I want to break this string up into two entries using a _ seperator, one
for Joe and the other for Bill. I could do this with a simple

string.gsub(",", "_")

However the problem with doing this is that there are commas elsewhere
in the string. So what I need to say is, if the comma is outside of ""
(quotes) replace it with the _

Could anyone possibly help me with this?

Thanks
