Online text separator and replacer
Our online text separator tool
The Free Nerd Tools text separator lets you separate your text using different separators. The input area is where you have to enter your text and then select the separator of your choice. For example, hyphens, underscores, vertical bars, spaces, and other characters can be specified as separators. It is one of the most uncomplicated text separators, which requires only input text and user selection of which character to replace. The tool assists you in separating the text from any character you choose. As opposed to other online tools, this one runs on your browser locally, securely, and privately, so you don't have to worry about privacy.
What is a delimiter?
A delimiter marks the start or end of a data unit with a character or a sequence of characters. Text, mathematical expressions, or other data streams can contain these characters to indicate the boundary between two separate, independent parts. As one means of defining boundaries within a data stream, delimiters are used.
For example, the hyphen symbol(-) indicates the delimiter between the two data items FREENERD and TOOLS in "FREENERD - TOOLS.".
Split text with delimiter using FreeNerdTools
FreeNerdTools has made it simple to split any length of text into chunks. The following simple steps will guide you through the process:
- Open the Text Separator tool
- Fill in the text area with your string of text.
- Select the characters you wish to use to separate it, i.e., selecting input characters, either comma(,), semi-colon (;), hyphens(-), underscore(_), pipes(|) or dot(.).
- Specify the separator, i.e., the character you want in output, like a newline, space, comma, hyphen, semi-colon, or vertical bar.
- Click on submit button to get the desired separated text.
Replace space with comma
With the Free Nerd text separator, replacing space with a comma is pretty simple. There are two options on the page, 'Currently separated by' and 'Replace with.'. All you need to do is select 'space' in the first option and 'comma' in the second. The resulting text will have all the spaces replaced by commas.
The following output will be produced with this setting:
Input: Free Nerd Tools
Replace the comma with a space
Commas will be replaced with spaces if you choose the comma-to-space setting. Make sure to switch the 'Currently separated by' input to the comma option, and 'Replace with' should have a space option selected. Any input data that you enter with commas will now be transformed into data separated by spaces.
For example, this setting will convert the input to the output mentioned below
Output: Free Nerd Tools
Replace new line with comma
With our free online tool, you can convert an ordinary list or raw data set to text separated by a comma. To do this, select new line in the first option and comma in the next.
The following output will be produced with this setting, for example.
Replace space with a new line
Just in a similar way, you can replace a space with a new line. Free Nerd Tool has made it very simple to replace one separator with another. Select the space in the first option, which tells how your text is currently separated, and select the new line in the next, which will determine the output.
Here's an example of what will happen with this setting.
Input: Free Nerd Tools
Replace the comma with a new line
With Free Nerd text separator, you can convert an ordinary comma-separated list to a column list. Make sure to switch the 'Currently separated by' bar to the comma option, and 'Replace with' should have a new line option selected.
With this setting, for example, the input will be converted to the output mentioned below.
