Some time ago I presented a question concerning parsing names in a data
file.  I've got it working perfectly except for the following:
Currently, the parsing routine uses delimiters (spaces, commas etc) to
determine what separates the values (such as first name, middle name etc.)
So, John L. Jones Jr  is pretty simple.  I'm having problems with names like
Juan Lopez De Los Santos
The Juan and Lopez are fine, however, it's reading the De Los Santos as
three separate entities as its programmed to do... I'm just wondering if
there might be a better way to do this so I can get De Los Santos into the
last name field.
Any suggestions?
