var tarrO = strIn.match(/\d+|\+|\-|\*|\//g);
Thank you. This is closer to what I was trying for.
'mrhoo's solution uses the eval(), which in the final analysis of my feeble attempts, was what I was trying to avoid.
Thank you both. I'll report back later with progress status.
EDIT: Just noticed mrhoo's second post. I'll give that a try as well. Thanks again!
Tried mrhoo's solution and it works just a well for my initial needs.
