I have a string of text:

The string reads:

do you want to replace "content/about.txt" with "about" ?
if you want to select the text between / and . you can do this with the followin code (VB script):

dim positionslash, positiondot, string, resultlenght, begin, result 'string is your original string

positionslash = InStr(string,"/")
begin = positionslash + 1
positionpoint = InStr(string,".")
resultlenght = positionpoint - positionslash - 1
result = Mid(string,begin,resultlenght)

their might be a shorter way. anyone ?

Not really - you could combine all that stuff into one line probably, but without doing that, matching it against a regular expression or using Split() would probably be about the same amount of code give or take a few bytes...
