    When I am Splitting any string using the split() method then it is working good but the problem is that after splitting it removes the char that is used foe splitting

     

    like

    String str = 'abc-xyz-pqrs-zykp';

    list<String>test = str.split('-');

    Output : {abc,xyz,pqrs,zykp}

    Actual outPut that I want : {abc,-xyz,-pqrs,-zykp};

    I want this to be done without iterating the above list in a for loop.

    Hi Ajit,

    Please try this, Add this '?=' character before the value on which you want to split,

    String str = ‘abc-xyz-pqrs-zykp’;

    listtest = str.split(‘?=-‘);

    Output : {abc,-xyz,-pqrs,-zykp}

    OR if you want the dash '-' at the end of your list values than add this "(?!-)" before the value.
    String str = ‘abc-xyz-pqrs-zykp’;

    listtest = str.split(‘?!-‘);

    Output : {abc-,xyz-,pqrs-,zykp}

    Hi Ajit,

    Please try this, Add this ‘?=’ character before the value on which you want to split,

    String text = "Good morning. Have a good class. " +
    "Have a good visit. Have fun!";

    String[] words = text.split("\\W+");

     

    Thanks.
