FIELD$()

Compatible with:
DOS Maximite CMM MM150 MM170 MM+ MMX Picromite ArmiteL4 Armite F4 ArmiteH7 CMM2

Syntax:
FIELD$( string1, nbr, string2 [, string3] )

Description:
Returns a particular field in a string with the fields separated by delimiters.
'nbr' is the field to return (the first is nbr 1). 'string1' is the string to search and 'string2' is a string holding the delimiters (more than one can be used).
'string3' is optional and if specified will include characters that are used to quote text in 'string1' (ie, quoted text will not be searched for a delimiter).

For example:
S$ = "foo, boo, zoo, doo"
r$ = FIELD$(s$, 2, ",")
print r$
Output:
boo

s$ = "foo, 'boo, zoo', doo"
r$ = FIELD$(s$, 2, ",", "'")
print r$

Output:
'boo, zoo'
