The functionality doesn't exist currently in Developer.
However, what does exist is the ability to treat two consecutive delimiters as a single delimiter. If you used || as your delimiter, it would parse this as a single delimiter. Still, be aware that if you used | in your text (single pipe) it would also be interpreted as a delimiter. If you do not find a workaround to this, can you please open a support case? We can devote more time to this and open an enhancement request as needed.
