What is the Visual Basic .NET equivalent of PHP's split() or explode() function?

More info: split() and explode() take a string and split it into array components based on another string.

Given a string named $a: "super;really;seriously"
And given command: split($a,";");
An array would be produced: $b[0]="super", $b[1]="really", $b[2]="seriously"

split is the same in vb.net...

strData="super;really;seriously"
arrData=strData.Split(strData,";")

Now arrData(0) would equal "super", arrData(1) would equal "really", etc...

Perhaps the explode is the same as Join in vb.net? (joins the array back together...)

Aha!  I was treating it as a function instead of a method - and explode is the same as split.  Thanks!

Glad I could be of assistance... (since I can only spell PHP - haha!)
