Alternate List Delimiters

ColdFusion features a whole set of list manipulation functions (all beginning with the word “list” and all of which take a list as the first parameter). By default these functions manipulate comma-delimited lists, but you are not limited to this delimiter. In fact, every one of the list functions takes an optional last attribute containing the characters to be used as delimiters. And you can use multiple delimiters too (in which case any one of the characters will delimit elements, not all of them). (Applies to: ColdFusion All)
