Subject RE: Extracting individual tokens after using stringtokenizer
Date Mon, 25 May 2015 18:48:08 GMT
Thanks. I had seen that link before, but it seems to be overly complicated for getting individual
tokens out when I am able to separate them using stringtokenizer.  Isn't there any other simplere
way to do what I am after?
