It seems likely, looking at his regex, that he's insecure about the notion of "ITEM" being capitalized uniformly over his full data set. The sample he provided us is uniform, but why else would he go to all the trouble of creating alternations like (?:Item|ITEM) several times? If he's unable to depend on an all-caps "ITEM" as a delimiter, your solution won't be any more robust than his current one.

[davido]: I have nvidia (1050ti) in one system at home. My work laptop came with a radeon/amd video system that is no longer supported by debian/ubuntu. So that being the case I'm in the "prefer nvidia even if proprietary" camp
[davido]: Especially since the laptop is only a couple years old.
