 ts: ts: how to parse embedded commas

| >    $x= "var1,var2, sum(sum(i,j), sum(k, sum(l, m))) as var3";
| you should be able to do something like:
| while($x =~ s/sum\(([^()]*)\)/&sum($1)/e) {}
| sub sum
|  {
|    my ($v1, $v2) = split(/\s*,\s*/, $_[0]);
|    return $v1 + $v2;
|  }
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately there *are* other functions
besides "sum", possibly hundreds of them. I know I could change
the regex to \w+ but I decided to use an array reference instead (1 var per element). --ts
