Parsing text

Postby m_b » July 28th, 2004, 9:57 am

How can I parse a string which looks like this:

name1=value1 name2=value2 name3=value3

and

name1: value1; name2=value2; name3=value3

and

name1=value1&name2=value2&name3=value3

Values may be quoted, like name1="value1",
but not like name1: "value1",into two variables which would be name, value: string;

I need this so I could parse HTML element attributes from text, which look like this:

<input type="submit" name=s1 value="Submit query" style="bgcolor: #ffffff; color: #000000">

And also for url parameters which look like this:

It would be nice to have a function like: GetAttribute(wholeText, attributeName: string): string;

Can anyone show me how to do this, cause I have no idea how to do it and I'm desperate??? :(

Thanks in advance...
