Default Need help from Regex Gurus!!!

Hey guys,

This is my first time posting in this forum and I hope it won't be my last.

I learned all about RegEx last semester but we worked in the linux environment using LEX. Now I'm trying to work with ASP/VB and it's different enough for me to not quite get it :P

Users have to input a search query to, well, execute a search on my site. I want the regex to seperate the string in an array for every rule I specify... but I want my rules to have a hierarchy of importance.

For example: The rules are that the words wrapped by quotation marks are searched as a string and words that aren't are searched word for word.

Search : ["pizza ingredients" tomatoe pepper]

will seperate into:

Array(0) = pizza ingredients
Array(1) = tomatoe
Array(2) = pepper

So the rules have to have this hierarchy:

"*" (for words wrapped in quotation marks)
XXX (rule for words wrapped in spaces)

So... any ideas? I've been at this for two days.. :S
