- Separator: It can be a simple text or a Regular Expression. For example, empty str, space, ‘,’ or ‘.’
- Limit (integer): Restrict the number of elements written by the array.
This example will help you understand this method. Here, we declared an str variable with a sentence.
The first statement will break the original text into individual characters. Next, we used the empty space as a separator for the split function. So, it will separate the original str1 into an array of words based on white space.
