How can we improve the PI Server?

Add more advanced string handling functions to the String Builder data reference

I would like to use some more advanced string functions such as Split, Len (string length), and even regex filtering to allow more fine grained control of how some input strings (such as attribute values or substitution parameters) are manipulated to create a new string output.

    John has proposed some functionality that would solve some very real world issues for us.  If we can chop up some strings, we will be able to improve the quality of integration we have to our systems, for Well and Compressor Work Management System.
    Right now, we have to maintain a set of tables for Table Lookup to be able to provide the strings that are already encoded within a string attribute we already have.
