Extracting a link from text block returned from HTTPService

Extracting a link from text block returned from HTTPService

I would like to extract a link from a block of text. The text gets passed in by a HTTPService call and the I loop throuhg each object to disply the text of each object as row within a table.

However the text almost always contains a url in, so I would like to extract the link within the block of text and display within another column.

For example, the following text shows a typical response from the HTTPService..

Loch Fyne Whiskies announces bottling of 2010

I would like to extract the link from the above text.. any ideas?


RE: Extracting a link from text block returned from HTTPService

You'll probably want to use your typical string functions, particularly substr which is the AS equivalent to mid.  You could try using regex as well to match the URL.
