Split(string[, delimiter[, count[, compare]]])


Split returns a one-dimensional array of strings of a specified length, created by dividing a single string where a specified delimiter occurs. The required parameter, string, is a valid string expression; if string is a zero-length string (""), a single-element array containing the entire expression string is returned. The optional argument, delimiter, is a string expression whose first character is used to separate the substrings; if not specified, delimiter defaults to a space character; if delimiter is a zero-length string (""), a single-element array containing the entire string is returned. The optional parameter, count, is a numeric expression that specifies the number of substrings to return; if count is not provided -1 is used as a default specifying that all substrings be returned. The optional parameter, compare, is used to specify the type of search performed.
