Hi.

Since you may have any number and kind of characters in any of the fields in
each record, I would append a character that is unlikely ever to appear in
any context. I like numToChar(202), but others like numToChar(3) or
numtoChar(8).

Then you can set the itemDelimiter to that char, and be sure that you are
parsing the totality of each field within any record.
