In version sections, the `parse` method takes a single character in a loop and determines whether it is a delimiter. In pre and build sections, the parse method takes two characters in a loop and determines whether the second character is the delimiter. Therefore, if the string contains a sequence of delimiters in pre or build section, the `parse` method treats character at the odd-numbered position as a token and the one at even-numbered as a delimiter.

I thin this is okay, just look unusual to have repeated punctuation creating the case where a component is empty. @mbreinhold may wish to comment on this PR.
