Hi, I need split a string like this:

Locals $ str = "aaa:bbb,ccc:{key1:value1},ddd:{key2:{key3:value3,key4:value4}},eee:{key5:value5}"

Always have a value folowed a key, splited by :, if nested, separated by ,

No need split the child, I use recursion

I was exptect something like this

aaa: bbb
ccc: {key1: value1}
ddd: {key2: {key3: value3, key4, valor4}}
eee: {key5, valor5}
Question: is possible solve this with regular expression or exist anotherway?
Best regards,

I suspect a couple typos in your example. I see that both (key4 and value4) and (key5 and value5)  are separated by commas, while they should use a colon in your syntax. That or key4 and key5 are misnommers and are in fact values and not actual keys.
