Hi @matthewd92
Am having issues with socket read command.
i need to receive (Pass,2.33,5.55, ok)
but if I use socket_read_string (), I cannot receive anything and cannot indexable as well
if I use socket_read_ascii-float() cannot read characters
If I use socket_read _line () received nothing.

please let me know the format

    String needs to be passed as a string, you could then use the string tools that UR provides to parse the string and get the various values you need.  Same with read line, still looking for a single line.  read_ascii_float will only work with numbers, cannot pass text through that method.

    For example:

    Here is a program where I received back the data like you were asking for, it's stored in the variable originalMessage and then I parse it to get the 4 values that you are sending.  I also convert values 2 and 3 to numbers.

    Notice that on my server I excluded any white spacing from the string that was sent following the commas, this was so that I did not have to deal with getting rid of the white space even though if you knew it was there you could handle it.
