I have this text file

"CS157" "Databases" "3" "CS"
"Cs151" "OOP" "4" "CS"
"Anthro147" "Human Sexuality" "6" "Ap" <=========  see that human sexuality. i need that to break down to one word but its making it two words. How would i make it so within quotes is one word?

you can see belowq i'm delimiting tabs and quotes so its taking human sexuality as two words. I'd like if its even three words but within quotes it be stored as a single string.

But not sure how i'd do this can it be done with stringtokenizer or is there a better tool fore this?

 while(line != null)
       {
       StringTokenizer tokens = new StringTokenizer(line," \" \t");
       list = new ArrayList();


       while (tokens.hasMoreTokens())
       {
             //System.out.println(tokens.nextToken());
         list.add(tokens.nextToken());
         }
