how to parse Text Field (multi line) with JJUPIN


I want to parse a multi line text field with sample data below to a string array, how do i do this with jjupin sil?

I think i just need to replace the new_line with a comma and that it.

Text Field

One , One

Two , Two

Three , Three

expected output

String [] str

str = "One,One,Two,Two,Three,Three"

Hi Eric,

You can use replace all \n and "," (comma) characters with a "|" (pipe) then cast the resulting string to a string[].


string s = TEST-123.description; // text to parse
s = replace(s, "\n", "|");
s = replace(s, ",", "|");
string [] array = s;

just what i need.

thanks florin..

And would you have a tip how to, while splitting the string based on commas, to ignore the commas inside double quotes?

Many systems when they export to CSV will put columns that contain commas into quotes. E.g.

column1, column2, column3, "column4,test",column5
