The stringToBVector function separates a String {string} into several substrings using the key {key} as the separator. The result substrings are collected to form an Object Vector and the Object Vector is returned. The stringToBVector has an optional argument {true}, which, if present, will treat the {key} argument as a collection of keys rather than a single key or pattern. In other words if {true} is present, any character in the {key} will cause a substring break.


The stringToBVector function's ability to separate a String into several substrings makes the function ideally suitable for tokenizing a String. Afterwards, each substring in the Object Vector, can be processed as tokens.




(stringToBVector string key)

(stringToBVector string key true)

(stringToBVector text key )

(stringToBVector text key true)

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:stringString or Text Target String or Text
Argument:keyString Text Character The break string or character
Argument:trueBoolean Optional. If present, treat the key argument as a collection of key characters, if not present, treat the key argument as the key string.
