Default add substrings to an array

hi folks,

i have a string of numbers which i want seperated so that every figure has its own place in an array. i tried it this way, but i couldn't get it working:

proc dothis()

print ("barcode" + "\n");
global string $barcode;

$barcode _= `textField -query -text barcode1`;

for ($i=1; $i<=(size($barcode)); $i++) {

$barpiece =`substring $barcode $i $i`;
global string $barc[];
string $barc[$i] = {$barpiece};


at least i think it should work like this, but well, being a newbie... :unsure:
anyway the error i get is:
// Error: _string $barc[$i] = {$barpiece}; //
// Error: Syntax error //
i hope you can help me with this issue.
thanks in advance!

use the tokenize command:

string $buffer[];
string $myNumbs = "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10";

tokenize $myNumbs " " $buffer;

for($numb in $buffer)
print("numb: -->" + $numb +"<--\n");
