    seems hes asking how he could start at a symbol and end at one.

    basically same thing but one more statement:

    use an ignore statement to ignore the all the characters up to your first symbol, then use what 7stud wrote to get the input till the next symbol.

    You can certainly use ignore(), but you can also just read in up to the first delimiter, and not do anything with that input.

    You can use whatever symbol you want and change it as often as you like.
