Explode (Function)

Format

variable = explode ( string_expression , delimiter_expression )
variable = explode ( string_expression , delimiter_expression , boolean_expression )

returns a list of strings. Typically this function is used to create an array.

Description

Splits up the string_expression into substrings wherever the delimiter_expression occurs.

You may also specify an optional Boolean value 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]=foo
n[5]=9.987
n[6]=6.45
