How to: Parse Strings Using the Split Method

How to: Parse Strings Using the Split Method (C++/CLI)


The following code example demonstrates using the String.Split method to extract each word from a string. A string containing multiple types of word delineators is constructed and then parsed by calling Split with a list of the delineators. Then, each word in the sentence is displayed separately.

// regex_split.cpp
// compile with: /clr
using namespace System;

int main()
   String^ delimStr = " ,.:\t";
   Console::WriteLine( "delimiter : '{0}'", delimStr );
   array<Char>^ delimiter = delimStr->ToCharArray( );
   array<String^>^ words;
   String^ line = "one\ttwo three:four,five six seven";

   Console::WriteLine( "text : '{0}'", line );
   words = line->Split( delimiter );
   Console::WriteLine( "Number of Words : {0}", words->Length );
   for (int word=0; word<words->Length; word++)
      Console::WriteLine( "{0}", words[word] );

   return 0;
