How to split string using istringstream with other delimiter than whitespace?

The following trick using istringstream to split a string with white spaces.

int main() { string sentence("Cpp is fun"); istringstream in(sentence); vector<string> vec = vector<string>(istream_iterator<string>(in), istream_iterator<string>()); return 0; }

Is there a similar trick to split a string with any delimiter? For instance, | in "Cpp|is|fun".

-------------Problems Reply------------

Generally speaking the istringstream approach is slow/inefficient and requires at least as much memory as the string itself (what happens when you have a very large string?). The C++ String Toolkit Library (StrTk) has the following solution to your problem:

#include <string>
#include <vector>
#include <deque>
#include "strtk.hpp"
int main()
std::string sentence1( "Cpp is fun" );
std::vector<std::string> vec;
strtk::parse(sentence1," ",vec);

std::string sentence2( "Cpp,is|fun" );
std::deque<std::string> deq;

return 0;
