ya i will think about this now that the other issue has been explained!
the way i was doing it seemed a bit funny (and i initially tried
findIndices), but couldn't see how to use the limited tools i'm aware

i was wanting to do something like keep pulling characters and make a
new string until the delimiter was found

fn cs = [x | x <- cs, x /= '%'] : []

but can't figure out how to use this idea to actually cause splitting
into [String]

i also explored break and splitAt, but haven't quite worked out a
mechanism to use those, yet.

thx again for your help.
