I have been looking around a while, trying to figure out at the very least, how to take a string like "25 from a car accident" and have 25 as a useable integer and "from a car accident" as a useable string. what i'm trying to accomplish is doing this from a text file. I can read and write and everything i just don't know how to take a string and separate it into the 2 components. Help much appreciated. I know this probably isn't that high a priority question :P so thank you for the support.
