Re: String tokenizer problem



fixed

I couldn't get it to work either. I even tried getting rid of the plus and
the colon. Nothing seemed to work. Very strange.

I did get the java.util.Scanner to work though. You can use that at Java 5
or higher.


String text = "Sep 29, 2009 7:00 PM GMT+00:00 Sep 30, 2009 7:30 PM
GMT+00:00";
Scanner s = new Scanner(text);
s.useDelimiter("GMT\\+00:00");
while (s.hasNext()) {
System.out.println(s.next());
}

Hope this helps.

I'm having some trouble with the StringTokenizer. As far as I can tell
there is something wacky going on due to the + or : in the delimiter.
I have the following string:
Sep 29, 2009 7:00 PM GMT+00:00 Sep 30, 2009 7:30 PM GMT+00:00

I am using "GMT+00:00" (no quotes) as the delimiter.

The String#split method correctly splits the string in to the array
elements using a simple regex:
String[] tokens = text.split("GMT\\+00:00");

The StringTokenizer splits on the first double zero in 2009 and then stops
at the colon in the time next:
StringTokenizer t = new StringTokenizer(text, "GMT+00:00");

The 1st two tokens are:
Sep 29, 2
9 7

Has anyone seen this behavior before? Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks,
