digitalmars.D.bugs - std.string.split()

Hi,

I've just discovered D and have loaded the GCC fronted on my Mac. I'm 
trying some simple stuff and have come across a problem. I'm using 
string.split("a line of text with % in it, some more text", ","). Split 
seems to choke on lines with a "%" in. Is this normal behaviour? Would 
std.regexp.split be a better bet?

Thanks

Hi, Split should not choke on the %... But your output method may. Try printing the substrings with writef("%s",str); /Oskar
