I did the same... although I was quick to create a simple regex that
would parse simple CSV, it would fail for many cases, I trying to
refine the damn thing using lookaheads, negations and all sorts of
regex juggling but no good, all I've got as a nice "Revolution app
force quited" message when the PCRE engine decided to that I was to
dumb for him and went down in flames.
I think it's easier to use normal string routines in transcript and
build yourself a parser.... damn....
