One character at a time in a high level language like Python, please. 
See http://nedbatchelder.com/text/python-parsers.html for a list of 
parsers that can do all sorts for you.  Or the stdlib re module 
https://docs.python.org/3/library/re.html.  Or a likely replacement for 
the re module https://pypi.python.org/pypi/regex.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
