[Monetdb-developers] Unimplemented XQuery standard functions

Hi Djoerd,

I desperately needed tokenize() myself, so I wrote my own version in
XQuery. Incredably slow, but it works. Note that $sep should be a string
with only one character.

declare function pxml:poormansTokenize($s as xs:string, $sep as xs:string)
   let $slen := string-length($s)
      ,$split := for $i in (1 to $slen) return substring($s,$i,1)
      ,$pos := (0,(for $c at $p in $split where $c eq $sep return
      ,$len := for $i in (2 to count($pos))
               return exactly-one($pos[$i]) - exactly-one($pos[$i - 1]) - 1
   for $p at $i in $len
   return substring($s,exactly-one($pos[$i])+1,$p)

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
