The StringTokenizer class

The base.StringTokenizer class is designed to parse a string to extract tokens based on delimiters.

The steps to use a string tokenizer are:
  1. Define a variable of the base.StringTokenizer type.
  2. Create the string tokenizer object with one of the create methods, passing the string to be parsed as parameter.
  3. Optionally, count the number of tokens with countTokens() before processing.
  4. Use a WHILE loop to process the different tokens, by using hasMoreTokens() as loop condition and nextToken() inside the loop body to get the next token.
