Thanks, I did not know about this...
Unfortunately the function it is not part of the Delphi StrUtils unit
and I need my solution to be usable on Delphi since the bulk of the
program is probably too difficult to port to FPC. It contains a lot of
graphics that uses an outdated version of GLScene, which I have had to
make some minimal pathces to in order to port the program up to XE5.
But I feel a port to FPC would tax my abilities too much because of
the 3rd party stuff that has been used...

It was a good suggestion, though!
And I see that the delimiter argument can be set to StdWordDelims,
which takes care of virtually all whitespace stuff. Will use it
whenever I code in FPC and have this problem.
