Here's one mistake. What you do here is to split the *delimiter* into an
array of chars. The resulting array of ToCharArray is:

{' ', '-', ' ')

Which means that you split the string by both spaces and hyphens.

Another "problem" is that String.Split only works with just characters as
delimiters, but underneath it really makes use of another method:
Regex.Split.

With that you can use the *string* "del" as the delimiter, e.g.:

using System.Text.Reg ularExpressions ;

...

string str = "aa a - bb-b - ccc";

string del = " - ";

string[] temp = Regex.Split(str , del);

Itzik,
As Bjorn stated, String.Split splits based on individual characters. If you
want to split based on words I would recommend Strings.Split or RegEx.Split.

There are three Split functions in .NET:

Use Microsoft.Visua lBasic.Strings. Split if you need to split a string based
on a specific word (string). It is the Split function from VB6.

Use System.String.S plit if you need to split a string based on a collection
of specific characters. Each individual character is its own delimiter.

Use System.Text.Reg ularExpressions .RegEx.Split to split based
on matching patterns.
By referencing the Microsoft.Visua lBasic assembly in C# you can use the
Strings.Split function to split a string based on a word.

Something like:
string str = "aa a - bb-b - ccc" string del = " - "
string [] fields = Strings.Split(s tr, del, -1, CompareMethod.B inary);

Hope this helps

A very fast string splitter that thwomps both Regex, because of the
overhead, and VB.Split, because they have some weird heuristics.

Hi all, While writing a small program to help other poster at c.l.py, I found a small inconsistency between the handling of keyword parameters of string.split() and the split() method of strings. I wonder if someone else had ever stumbled on it before, and if it has a good reason to work like it is. Both implementations take two parameters: the separator character and the max number of splits (maxsplit). However, string.split() accept

We need an additional function in the String class. We need the ability to suppress empty fields, so that we can more effectively parse. Right now, multiple whitespace characters create multiple empty strings in the resulting string array.
