I am new in Erlang programming, so I want to know how can I split strings using Erlang Code.
This is my String: MyString = "I Love Erlang Programming";
I want to split above string into a list of tokens.
Please help me, and give me an example if possible.
Thank you.

You can split string according to space existance, like this:
> MyTokens = string:tokens("I Love Erlang Programming", " ").
This will return a List of tokens like this:
["I","Love","Erlang","Programming"]
OR we can use any character to split string instead of space.
Example: > MyTokens = string:tokens("I.Love.Erlang.Programming", ".").
Result of above example will be same as the previous example.
I hope it is sufficient to understand.
