Using SplitString to get sub-string between 2 delimiters

Posted 11 years ago
Is there a way to use SplitString (or other built-in function) to get a sub-string that is between 2 user specified delimiters? Or is it necessary to create a function to do this iteravtively with SplitString?

You can also add to that slightly, and just extract the bit in the middle.


StringSplit["This is more fun  # than shooting @ a barrelful of monkeys", "@" | "#"][[2]]

YES - thanks! That is exactly what I was looking for......I had tried adding some boolean content but did not have the syntax correct. Thanks for the solution combined with some bonus humor.
