How to read and parse tab delimited file using JDK 1.3 API. In 1.4 we have split function in string that takes regualr expression as parameter but how to achieve this in JDK 1.3.

Unfortunately I am stuck up with a project that still uses jdk 1.3 and I am on a short deadline. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sunil

See if StringTokenizer won't take a tab as the delimiter.

new StringTokenizer( myString, "\t" );
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
