What do you mean by "deal with"?  Please describe the input and the 
desired output, or what operations you are trying to perform, or 
something.  "Deal with" could mean anything, so it means nothing.

It would probably be a good idea to attach some code, if it's not too 
long (no longer than 100 lines or so, preferably less).  I'm afraid that 
I'm having trouble understanding what you want, and I suspect many other 
people are too.  I also recommend showing an example, with input and 
output, of what you want to achieve: the "before and after" picture.  An 
example goes a long way towards communicating one's goal.
