    Greetings!

    I do appreciate the replies given and the suggestion by Mr. Hanlin is golden! I was heading down a path similar to the suggestion by Mr. Bertz; but, I figured that there had to be an easier method.

    I can just imagine two different approaches to getting to the other side of a pole. My way, where I keep butting my head against the pole trying to get through because I know no better or someone pointing out that I can just walk around it.

    Sometimes, in my programming, I feel the same. Many thanks, Tom!

    Depends on what you need to parse, how. On the assumption that you're
    just trying to pull the numbers from a sentence of this type, though, I'd
    be inclined to keep it simple:

    Code:
    s$ = "You earn 58 experience points and find 43 gold pieces."
    i% = instr(s$, any "0123456789")
    xp& = val(mid$(s$, i%))
    i% = instr(i% + len(str$(xp&)), s$, any "0123456789")
    gp& = val(mid$(s$, i%))

    I'm not sure the parse function is what you need - I don't believe
    that there is a parse$ function in PBDOS.

    In PBCC or PBDLL you could parse it like this

    xp& = VAL(PARSE$(linetext$, ANY " ", 3))

    Using the spaces between the words as delimiters

    However, to accomplish the same thing in PBDOS you could
    use mid$ to strip just the numbers out of the sentence with MID$.
    (that is as long as the sentence was the same every time)

    xp& = val(MID$(linetext$,10,3))

    Parsing Question

    Greetings!

    I'm having a few problems with parsing. I've a handful of lines similar to this one:

    "You earn 58 experience points and find 43 gold pieces."

    ...that I'm attempting to parse. I'd like to end with two variables after parsing this line:

    XP&=58
    GP&=43

    What's the easiest way to pull a variable number from this set sentence?
