[REBOL] Rebol parsing 101

From: mpcweber:comcast at: 1-Oct-2003 21:20

im brand new to Rebol and not getting the hang of string parsing for example: assume i have string fcontents == {09/29/03 ATM/POS ACTIVITY $28.68 (pending) 09/29/03 ATM/POS ACTIVITY $11.41 09/29/03 ATM/POS ACTIVITY $ 21.71 ... i would like to convert this string into a set of blocks where each block has 4 elements of the types [date string money string] (the 4th element is optional [09/29/03 "ATM/POS ACTIVITY" $28.68 (pending)] [09/29/03 "ATM/POS ACTIVITY" $11.41 ] [09/29/03 "ATM/POS ACTIVITY" $21.71 ] i've been plodding around trying to get anything to work, like find/any fcontents ["09/*/03"] but im not understanding how to isolate the elements i suspect i should be able to create something akin to a regular expresion that i can use as a pattern to apply to the string
