manipulating strings

I am trying to write what i guess should be a simple program where i enter a string which may have spaces at the beginning and elsewhere and i have to print out the string with one word per line and no spaces.  The basic part of the code I have so far is:

Line = ReadStringPr("Enter a line of text: ");
  for(Index = 0; Index <= Length(Line); Index = Index + 1)
   if(Line[Index] != '')

Could anybody please give a newbie some pointers?

many thanks

RE: manipulating strings

if(Line[Index] != ' ') //' is not the same with ' '
//instead of ' ' you can also write 32,
//the number of the space symbol.
// only go to new line, it deppends on implementation
