listGet(list, index, delim)

If delim is not specified then the default value of ',' is used as the value separator in the string list

Example

[r: listGet("This, is, a , test", 2)]

Returns a

[r: listGet("This: is: a :test", 1, ":")]

Known Bug

If you use a whitespace character like a SPACE or TAB, listGet can pull the wrong indexed value.

[h: list = "0 1  3 4"]
[r: listGet(list, 3, " ")]
The output should be 3, but it is 4 because of the two SPACE characters being treated as one. Consequently this skips over an empty entry.
