I know this is probably a really basic question but nevertheless here it goes:<BR>I have a string that has following strucure: Big[nextitem]Dog[nextitem]jumped[nextitem]....<BR>I need to split it on [nextitem] (with C# not VB). Normally i would change the separator string to a comma, use the off the shelf split function and call it a day. Problem is that the separator has to be something pretty unique since<BR>the individual items (Big, Dog,jumped) will come from user input.<BR>Needless to say the string.split function will not work. How else can i split the above string into<BR>a string[] or any other kind of a structure i can loop through?<BR>thanks for any help you can provide!
