How to split a string into an array

By

A simple function that accepts a string and a delimiter char, splits a string into tokens (TStringList items) delimited with a char value.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject) ;
var
   A: TStringList;
begin
   A := TStringList.Create;
   try
     Split(' ', 'your delphi guide', A) ;
     ShowMessage(a[0]) ; //your
     ShowMessage(a[1]) ; //delphi
     ShowMessage(a[2]) ; //guide
   finally
     A.Free;
   end;
end;

}
procedure Split
   (const Delimiter: Char;
    Input: string;
    const Strings: TStrings) ;
begin
   Assert(Assigned(Strings)) ;
   Strings.Clear;
   Strings.Delimiter := Delimiter;
   Strings.DelimitedText := Input;
end;
