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.

[choroba]: When working at a bank, we had a colleague who entered mining early enough to have lots of bitcoins. He used to say "I go to work just because I'm too bored at home."
[Corion]: choroba: Aah, no, I do it because of the money :)
[choroba]: And when asked "How are you?" in the morning, his reply was usually "I don't know, haven't checked the bitcoin rates yet."
[Corion]: Heh - if I defined myself through the money I make, I would now only be 80% myself :-D
[choroba]: :-D
