More information:
A delimited string can be considered as any string that can be set into an array by the function SPLIT. However, once you have split the string, the work has just begun. These functions will allow you to apply all the VB functions relating to strings, only without the hassle of walking down the string, keeping indexes, looking out for special cases,...... These functions allow negative indexing (Extremely important for LIFO handling), handle special cases (null input strings, the input field does not include the marker field, ....), and generally make it conceptually easier to deal with strings.
