I'm kind of starting with string patterns with Mathematica and would like to make sense of some questions.
I was sorting out a string matching problem in Vim where I needed to find all strings not enclosed by double quotes (\"). To do this a regular expression with look-behind seems to be essential.
The tutorial in advanced string patterns from WR says Mathematica pattern lacks look-ahea/look behind type of functions, anyway, I tried with Mathematica and found that it was really easy, the solution (I suppose) I found in mathematica is
text = "this is a text with \"quotes\" we wish to select and there \ are more than \"one\" whole \"set \" of them \"the end\""
