 The result is breakage. And strtok_r() is not as portable as we require.

 strtok_r() is specified by POSIX. It doesn't exist on Windows (although
 Windows does have strtok_s(), which appears to be identical except for the
 name), but r.li doesn't work on Windows for more substantial reasons (e.g.

 I've attached a patch (against current 7.0) to use strtok_r() instead of

 G_tokenize() uses a single set of delimiters, while the r.li code uses
 vertical bar, space and newline. It may be possible to first split the
 text into lines with G_tokenize(str, "\n"), then into fields with vertical
 bar and/or space; it depends upon the structure of the data.
