Tab seperating characters in a string

Hi everyone,

I have been trying to figure out a way to add a tab delimiter in a string. I want my string column to remain as a single column. 

Ex: 100111 --> 1    0    0    1    1    1


I have been playing with the string replacer node, but have not been able to get it to work. It will literally insert "\t" instead of an actual tab.



hi there
please be a bit more specific regarding input and output.
And do you really need a tab or can it be replaced by another separator as well such as / or ; or , ?

Yes, I need tab separated values.

My input column is strings of 0s and 1s with no spaces, and I would like my output to be the same string just with each character separated by a tab. 

So my example is literally what I would like done:  "100111"  > "1    0    0    1    1    1"




ok.. so I tried the following and it looks promissing..
use two string manipulation nodes and insert in the first:
replace($bits$,"0", "0  \t")

and then use the new column (called bits2 in the example) and put in the second

replace($bits2$,"1", "1 \t")

hope that helps..

Thanks adaptagis, this works perfectly for me!


To anyone else wanting to use this, just make sure you remove the spaces in the code above.


Node 1: "String Manipulation"

replace($bits$,"0", "0\t")

Node 2: "String Manipulation"

replace($bits2$,"1", "1\t")
