Correct me if I'm misanalyzing this, but it sounds to me like a simple
transform-then-split would do the job:
Turn those pipe characters into spaces, then split on whitespace. Or,
reading it differently: Declare that pipe is another form of
whitespace, then split on whitespace. Python lets you declare anything
you like, same as mathematics does :)
