How can I display the first word of a series of words that ends with a semicolon?
My application gets phrases from a database. These strings can look like this:
house; home; residence
How can I format these strings so that the resulting output looks like:
In other words if there's a semicolon immediately following the first word I would like to just include from the start up to the end of the semicolon and if no semicolon then just include the first word.
