  • Parse a text string

    Hi all. I need to parse a string I read from the INI file or the Registry. I know how to parse a pathname, but I haven't found in the help and on this forum, how I can parse another text string. Any help is appreciaeted, since I'm really stuck.

      Hi, I need to do this all the time.

      This is just one example:

      ALBANIAN=SQ;INDO-EUROPEAN (OTHER);0;

      I need the 3 parts; In this INI string, they are separated from each other by a semi column ;

      Another example:
      1=WT -- Wrong Term ;5;2;
      I need the 3 parts; In this INI string, they are separated from each other by a semi column ;On top of that I will need to split the first part in 2 as well ( at the -- separator)

      thanks

        STRING > GET DELIMITED STRING will separate them and by using STRING > FIND in conjunction with STRING > LEFT or STRING > MID or STRING > RIGHT you can split up smaller strings based upon criteria, i.e. an '='...
