split "lines" into array

Posted on 2004-08-17

I want to split HTML text divisions into an array for further parsing.

The HTML is rather simple, only <br> and <p> separating text.
How can split the text into an array as if I were using:

lines = text.split("\n");

but with <br> & <p> instead of "\n"?

Try this :

lines = text.split(chr(13));

chr(13) is the carriage return.  I think that's what your looking for.

Like this:

lines = text.split(/(<br>|<p>)/i);
