Does anyone know how I can take a
and split it into 2 seperate strings? I have a name string and need it to be changed into a firstname string and second name string so the split should occur at the space.

The split() function will also work.
String full_name = "Larry Flamingo"; String names = full_name.split ( " " ); String first = names [ 0 ]; String last = names [ 1 ];
I agree. Here's the link:
