Description

This command was created to assist in creating commands that go to one location if given a parameter, and another if empty. It checks between two tokens in a string (default @) for any value (typically %s), and returns the whole string (minus tokens) if not empty. If the value IS empty, nothing is returned (or the value of -else is returned).

You can set the -else parameter to return a string if the value is empty.

By default, the tokens eop looks between are @. This can be changed by setting the -token parameter.
