This module supports the Visual Basic language keywords and run-time library members that manipulate strings.

The following example demonstrates how to split a string at its spaces.

Dim TestString As String = "Look at these!"
' Returns an array containing "Look", "at", and "these!".
Dim TestArray() As String = Split(TestString)
