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.
One , One
Two , Two
Three , Three
String  str
str = "One,One,Two,Two,Three,Three"
You can use http://confluence.kepler-rominfo.com/display/SIL/replaceto 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;
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
