Tokenization using the Scanner class We can extract substrings of a string using the Scanner class as well. useDelimiter method can specify the string pattern (including one character -- delimiter). See the following example: import java.util.Scanner; public class Scanner1 { public static void main(String[] args) { //First Example to tokenize the string "www/asu/edu" String line = "www/asu/edu"; Scanner scan = new Scanner(line).useDelimiter("/"); while (scan.hasNext()) { String word = scan.next(); System.out.println(word + " with length " + word.length()); } System.out.println(); //Second Example with "www/asu/" line = "www/asu/"; scan = new Scanner(line).useDelimiter("/"); while (scan.hasNext()) { String word = scan.next(); System.out.println(word + " with length " + word.length()); } System.out.println(); //Third example with "www//edu" line = "www//edu"; scan = new Scanner(line).useDelimiter("/");

Unformatted text preview: while (scan.hasNext()) { String word = scan.next(); System.out.println(word + " with length " + word.length()); } System.out.println(); //Forth example with "/asu/edu" line = "/asu/edu"; scan = new Scanner(line).useDelimiter("/"); while (scan.hasNext()) { String word = scan.next(); System.out.println(word + " with length " + word.length()); } } } The output of the program is as follows: www with length 3 asu with length 3 edu with length 3 www with length 3 asu with length 3 www with length 3 with length 0 edu with length 3 asu with length 3 edu with length 3 Therefore, if there is no string after the last delimiter, it will ignore it. But if there is no string between two delimiters, it returns a string of length 0. If the first string before the first delimiter is missing, it will skip it too....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
