Explode

Format

stringarrayvariable$ = explode ( string , delimiter )
stringarrayvariable$ = explode ( string , delimiter , caseinsensitive )
arrayvariable$ = explode ( string , delimiter )
arrayvariable$ = explode ( string , delimiter , caseinsensitive )

Description

Splits up string into substrings wherever the delimiter occurs. Substrings are stored in either the string or numeric array defined in the assignment statement. The array will be re-dimensioned to the exact size to store all of the substrings.

You may also specify an optional boolean value caseinsensitive to specify that the search will treat upper and lower case letters the same.

Example

# explode on spaces
a$ = "We all live in a yellow submarine."
print a$
w$ = explode(a$," ")
for t = 0 to w$[?]-1
   print "w$["+t+"]=" + w$[t]
next t

# explode on A or a
a$ = "klj;lkjalkjAlkj;"
print a$
w$ = explode(a$,"A",true)
for t = 0 to w$[?]-1
   print "w$["+t+"]=" + w$[t]
next t

# explode numbers on comma
a$="1,2,3,77,foo,9.987,6.45"
print a$
n = explode(a$,",")
for t = 0 to n[?]-1
   print "n["+t+"]=" + n[t]
next t

will display

We all live in a yellow submarine.
w$[0]=We
w$[1]=all
w$[2]=live
w$[3]=in
w$[4]=a
w$[5]=yellow
w$[6]=submarine.
klj;lkjalkjAlkj;
w$[0]=klj;lkj
w$[1]=lkj
w$[2]=lkj;
1,2,3,77,foo,9.987,6.45
n[0]=1
n[1]=2
n[2]=3
n[3]=77
n[4]=0
n[5]=9.987
n[6]=6.45
