Seems like a good prospect for an Idea (formerly RFE) to add an additional option.


There is already an Idea about this:

"%split() should return an empty element where a separator character follows another separator character"

Jon

I've lost connection to what used to be the place to enter RFEs Will you rise to the occasion and open an RFE to change/enhance %split to deal with consecutive delimiters ?

I'll vote for it if I find the d*mn link

TIA

Thanks Jon, Paul, Daniel

As it happens, for some years we coded a home-grown split procedure
that is able to split on consecutive delimiters.
Now, when a change to the program is due I had the bright idea to
replace it with IBM's %split So that it looks more "Elegant".

I'll treasure the %elem(Dynarray) = 0 though.
