If you want to process a dataset freely, datatool package might be useful. It lets you to load a dataset with custom delimiters, and process it row by row by \DTLforeach command. – Aydin Feb 19 '13 at 10:59

Please always post a complete small document that shows the problem. (That way you typically get tested code in an answer) But If for some reason you can't simply use a space in the source then

 \def\zzz#1/{\mbox{#1} }


would wrap at the / if used in a table p column.
