im trying to split a string with this form (the string is from a
japanese dictionary file with mulitple definitions in english for each
japanese word)

str1 [str2] / (def1, ...) (1) def2 / def3 / .... (2) def4/ def5 ... /

the varibles i need are str*, def*.

sometimes the (1) and (2) are not included - they are included only if
the word has two different meanings

"..." means that there are sometimes more then two definitions per

im trying to use the re.split() function but with no luck.

Is this possible with python, or am i dreamin!?

All the best,
