itemDel

Hi Yves,

There are two problems here:
- the itemDelimiter property wants a single char
- the separator "*$*" consists of characters which are
themselves used for the decomposition of regular
expression, so that makes it hard to use matchChunk

Hence a little workaround, assuming the string does
not contain multiple lines:

function myItemExtractor pString, pDelimiter, pitemNum
  put pString into tString
  replace pDelimiter with return in tString
  split tString by return
  return tString[pItemNum]
end myItemExtractor

Perhaps not the most elegant solution, but it should
work,
