split(1,n)(n)                     Tcl Built-In Commands                    split(1,n)(n)



NAME
       split(1,n) - Split a string(3,n) into a proper Tcl list

SYNOPSIS
       split(1,n) string(3,n) ?splitChars?


DESCRIPTION
       Returns a list created by splitting string(3,n) at each character that is in(1,8)
       the splitChars argument.  Each element of the result list will  consist
       of the characters from string(3,n) that lie between instances of the charac-
       ters in(1,8) splitChars.  Empty list elements will be  generated  if(3,n)  string(3,n)
       contains  adjacent  characters  in(1,8)  splitChars, or if(3,n) the first or last
       character of string(3,n) is in(1,8) splitChars.  If splitChars is an empty string(3,n)
       then  each character of string(3,n) becomes a separate element of the result
       list.  SplitChars defaults to the standard white-space characters.  For
       example,  split(1,n)  "comp.unix.misc" .  returns "comp unix misc" and split(1,n)
       "Hello world" {} returns "H e l l o { } w o r l d".
