Seconds, thirds, fourths?

(imported topic written by SystemAdmin)

Is there a way to parse by anything other than the first or last iteration in a string of text? Example:

following texts of firsts “”

What if I want the text following the second or third “”?

Thank you for your time in advance!

This should work:

(following texts of firsts “” of it) of (following texts of firsts “” of it) of (following texts of firsts “” of it) of “\this\is\a\test”

Here is another way to do it:

Q: parenthesized parts (1;2;3) of matches (regex "^\\(






+)") of “\this\is\a\test”

A: this

A: is

A: a

Just pick the parenthesized part that you need.

Fantastic. I can see the usefulness of both methods immediately, but boyd’s solution works best for the issue I am trying to resolve. Thank you!
