JavaScript regular expression to match a comma delimited list

This method uses the JavaScript String’s match() method to parse a comma delimited list and show its content in a Panel control.

You can try it here

function parseList(list) {
    var reg = list.match(/\w+(,\w+)*/g);
    document.getElementById('pnl').innerHTML = 'Total length:' + reg.length + '<br />';
    for (var i = 0; i < reg.length; i++) {
        document.getElementById('pnl').innerHTML += 'Token:\'' + reg[i] + '\'<br />';
//Call parseList function
parseList('item1, item2, item3');

    Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
