errors on the third arrow?
Found the problem!  It should be
Code: [Select]
:"DOTHIS TOTHIS"→Str1
:inString(Str1," "→A
:sub(Str1,1,A→Str2
:sub(Str1,A+1,length(Str1)-A→Str3
(it was the inString command)
You might also want to add in an If:Then statement to deal with there being no space in the string.

[edit] I accidentally had "len(" instead of "length("

It's no problem at all.
Everyone started somewhere and no one knows everything~

Actually, if I didn't look at the code, I wouldn't have realized exactly what he meant by "len(" either. ;P

I think Lenght( is slow, though. Is it fast enough for what you want to do? I know for collision detection stuff, it makes the game unplayable x.x

I know, I was just mentionning because Lenght is also used for that stuff in other games and knowing it was slow, I was afraid it might also be too slow for text based games text parsing
