This method splits a String object into an array of strings by separating the string into substrings.


string.split([separator][, limit]);

Here is the detail of parameters:

  • separator : Specifies the character to use for separating the string. If separator is omitted, the array returned contains one element consisting of the entire string.

  • limit : Integer specifying a limit on the number of splits to be found.

Return Value:
