Hi,

1.
var s1,s2: string;
begin
s1 := 'John like to play soccer';
s2 := Copy(s1, 6, 12); // s2 is 'like to play'
...

2.
var
i,k: integer;
a: array [1..50,1..2] of string;
begin
for i := 0 to Memo1.Lines.Count - 1 do begin
k := Pos(#9, Memo1.Lines[i]);
if k > 0 then begin
a[i,1] := Copy(Memo1.Lines[i], 1, k - 1); // the name
end;

k := Pos(':', Memo1.Lines[i]);
if k > 0 then begin
a[i,2] := Copy(Memo1.Lines[i], k+1, Length(Memo1.Lines[i]); // the age
k := Pos'years', a[i,2];
if k > 0 then begin
a[i,2] := Copy(a[i,2], 1, k - 1); // remove 'years' from the string
end;
end;
end;
...

Hi,
Have a look at TStringManager. You will find it at: http://www.geocities.com/ericdelphi/StrMan.html. Great string routines and easy to use. Install it and where ever you like to use it just add StrMan to your uses. You will get a global object called sm. So it's like sm.replace(....,...,..,..);
