I'm looking for help on something that seems like it would be highly discussed, but I can't seem to find much on it.

I'm interested in turning this mess
blah, A&Z this "some word", another word

into "searchable" tokens, e.g.

blah
A&Z
this
some word
another
word

The main delimiters here are whitespace and comma's, with quotes allowing for multiple words in a token.

Certainly I can hack my way through this, but I'm looking for some good advice from someone who's already done this.
