In Coldfusion, I need to parse a delimited string and put it into an array and then later loop through that array.

What is the easiest way to do that?

<cfset arr = ArrayNew(1) />
<cfloop index="i" list="#delimitedstring#" delimiter="character_that_serves_as_delimiter">
  <cfset ArrayAppend(arr, i) />
</cfloop>

then to loop through the array later
<cfloop index="J" from="1" to="#ArrayLen(arr)#">
  #arr[j]#
</cfloop>

Use the function   "listToArray()"

 <cfset variables.myArray = listToArray(variables.myList)>

 If the list is not comma delimited, add the delimiter..

 Say the delimiter is the pipe  '|'

  <cfset variables.myArray = listToArray(variables.myList, "|")>
