st: splitting strings

Hello statalist

I have a question regarding splitting up strings.
 Is it possible to split up a string using a string from another
variable defined in the same observation. I’m thinking of using the
“split” command.
Here’s an example, where V1 is the string I’d like to split and V2 is
where I’d like to split (different from each observation). V1_1 and
V1_2 are the results of the splitting
V1                                              V2
V1_1          V1_2
hello John Smith how are you?      John Smith     hello           how are you?
I’m fine Jane, how about you         Jane,              I’m fine
how about you?

Sorry about the ridiculous example.
Hope my question is clear
