Just to be safe--
Scan from the left and save the pointer when you find a / character.
Scan the entire string; that way you'll find the -last- /! One space
to the right of the last / is your start-of-string.
Then scan from the -right- and find the first delimiter (. or , or
whatever). One more space to the left is your end-of-string.
That eliminates any issues with names.with.extra.dots.
