Does anybody have a subsitute for PHP explode function in VB? I suppose it would have to be written from scratch.

To elaborate:
x="a,b,c"

then

a = FuncExplode(x)

a(1)="a"
a(2)="b"
a(3)="c"

The array variable a, I suppose, could be also passed to a function as ByRef variable.

Suggestions will be most appreciated. Thanks.
