I'm sure you may get more elegant answers, but when I was faced with the same problem, I solved it by replacing the "sep" string with a single character that did not (should not!) appear in the string, I used a hex ff -- so: unlikely-char: to-string to-char 255 original-string: "HELLOsepP E O P L EsepHOWsepAREsepYOU" replace/all original-string "sep" unlikely-char print mold parse/all original-string unlikely-char ["HELLO" "P E O P L E" "HOW" "ARE" "YOU"] Sunanda.
