That's a bit tricky. You have LHS = RHS where RHS includes all the
following text *except* the very next word before the following = (which
is the LHS of the next expression). Or something like that :)
py> import re
py> s = "a = 4.5 b = 'h' 'd' c = 4.5 3.5"
py> r = re.compile(r"\w+\s*=\s*.*?(?=\w+\s*=|$)")
py> for item in r.findall(s):
... print item
a = 4.5
b = 'h' 'd'
c = 4.5 3.5
