Can you give an example input/output? Maybe show some code you've already tried?

So far all I can tell is there needs to be something that splits strings based on some criteria and that certain characters are causing the output to be wrong but with no explanation or example of what a correct or incorrect output would look like.

For example can you provide us something like:
I need to take the string "Hi,there,dude!" and split it into a list of strings using the comma as a delimiter so I get three separate strings of "Hi" "there" and "dude!".
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
