I have a String in which there are 5 tokens taht are delimited by tabs ("\t"). I was using the StringTokenizer to parse this line and get individual tokens. It worked fine, till I encountered a situation where there were 2 tabs (instead of 1). Now, since StringTokenizer doesn't return me an empty string, how can I find out if there is a consecutive occurrence of that token. I know that the 3rd constructor of String Tokenizer has a boolean argument that can be set true, but it doesn't seem to be doing good to me!!
"Swats", I'm going to take a stronger stance than Barry.

Even split() doesn't give me an empty string"" or a null if there are two tabs in succession. What I want is, that if there are 2 consecutive tabs, then it should be able to detect that and give me an empty String or null which occurs between the two consecutive tabs.
