This set of OSAX provides a number of string manipulation tools useful in server scripting. Given a string and a delimiter, Tokenize parses strings of characters into lists of strings. This is (was) particularly useful in the extraction of variables from search and POST arguments of server scripts. Much of this script's functionality, as far as server scripts are concerned, has been superseded by the Parse CGI OSAX. Replace OSAX, on the other hand has not been replaced by another package. This tool too is very useful for string manipulations as well.
