JS: String.prototype.split()

The String.prototype.split() function divide the string into array of sub-strings. You can perform other array manipulation on the resultant string.

The syntax for split() function is given below.

String.split([separator, limit]);

Separator – it is a character that is used to separate the sub-strings. It is optional, however, a separator is required to divide the sub-strings.

Limit – it is the number of characters to be split. This is also optional.

Examples: split() function

Here are few examples of split function with and without separators.

var Str = "Hello World";
Str.split(''); 
// result in single character split 
//Output - "H","e","l","l","o", " ","W", "o", "r","l","d" 

Str.split(' '); 
//result in split between works rather than single characters
//Output - "Hello", "World"

Str.split();
//No arguments, the whole array is returned
//Output - Array["Hello World"]

Str.split('', 4);
//Limit set to 4, therefore, split only four letters 
//Output - "H","e","l","l"
