Creates a one-dimensional array from the String passed. SplitB is identical to Split, except that it treats the source as binary data.


result=SplitB(source[,delimiter]) OR source.SplitB([delimiter])

Part Type Description
result String array Array resulting from breaking source into elements using delimiter as the field delimiter.
source String Source string to be parsed into an array.
delimiter String Optional field delimiter used to parse Source into array elements. If delimiter is omitted, then a space is used as the delimiter.


Use the SplitB function to create a new String array from a list of elements (or fields) that are separated by a delimiter. If the optional parameter, delimiter, is not passed, a single space is assumed as the delimiter. If the delimiter is an empty string, the source string is split into characters.


The first example specifies the comma delimiter and the second example uses the default delimiter. They place each field into an array element, producing a three-element array. The last example parses the string into individual characters.

Dim anArray(-1) as String
anArray=SplitB("Adam Aardvark Accountant")
//First two using the alternate syntax:
Dim s as String
anArray=s.SplitB(",") //produces 3-element array
anArray=s.SplitB("")//produces array of individual characters
