Why don't you post a short bit of what you have. That will help us see just what is hanging you up ... regular expression syntax, the Scanner API or something else.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
