Splitting based on delimiter but only once

58 views (last 30 days)
Hello!
I know how to split a string entirely based on a delimiter. But I would like to know how to do the following split
Input: Country ˈk ʌ n t r i
Output: Country
and ˈk ʌ n t r i
That is, I would like to use the first 'space' as a delimiter. But not the other spaces between the letters.
Please let me know how to make this possible.
Thanks in advance!

Input is a single string "Country ˈk ʌ n t r i"
Output must be 2 strings. "Country" and "ˈk ʌ n t r i" separately.

Hello,
You can refer this idea to extend you the case of longer string
clear
input = 'Country ˈk ʌ n t r i';
[val,idx] = ismember(' ˈ',input);
n =length(idx);
output = cell(1,n);
for i = 1:n
if i == 1
output{i} = input(1:idx(i)-1);
else
output{i} = input(idx(i)+1:end);
end
end

input='Country k ʌ n t r i';
str1=strtok(input)
str2=extractAfter(input,str1)
output={str1,str2}
Results:
str1 =
'Country'
str2 =
' k ? n t r i'
output =
1×2 cell array
'Country' ' k ? n t r i'

>> S = 'Country ˈk ʌ n t r i';
>> C = regexp(S,' ','split','once')
C =
'Country' 'ˈk ʌ n t r i'
