Split on \t (tab) character using Split Arg to Vars object?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to split my {query} into separate vars based on the [TAB] delimiter (usually represented in regex by "\t")

I want to use the new Split Argument to Variables Utility workflow object for this:





It doesn't seem to work. Works fine with other delims such as comma and pipe("|")

Is there a way to do this, is this a bug, or am I "doing it wrong" ?

Thanks @Andrew

I ended up using a pipe instead but — since this tab char would be invisible, wouldn't it be more sensible to use things like \t or \n for readability?

@Andrew I second this, I’d put this low on the “to-do” list. But I think it would be more intuitive.

Agree. \t and \n are what you'd typically expect to work. They're also a lot clearer than invisible whitespace.
