Coming from PHP, I’m well versed in using the handy explode function to force a string into an array, using a specified delimiter character to chop up the string into the little bits that are to be stored in the array.
From the official definition: The split() method is used to split a string into an array of substrings, returning the new array containing the substrings.
It accepts two parameters, namely the separator and the limit, both of which are actually optional by the way. The separator parameter is where you specify the delimiter character (if you omit this, the entire string will be stuffed into a single element array ). The optional limit parameter if set will control the number of splits.
A few examples on using split:
var str="How are you doing today?"; //some split usage examples document.write(str.split() + "<br />"); document.write(str.split(" ") + "<br />"); document.write(str.split("") + "<br />"); document.write(str.split(" ",3)); //the output (',' indicates array boundary) //How are you doing today? //How,are,you,doing,today? //H,o,w, ,a,r,e, ,y,o,u, ,d,o,i,n,g, ,t,o,d,a,y,? //How,are,you
Craig Lotter is an established web developer and application programmer, with strong creative urges (which keep bursting out at the most inopportune moments) and a seemingly insatiable need to love all things animated. Living in the beautiful coastal town of Gordon's Bay in South Africa, he games, develops, takes in animated fare, trains under whichever martial arts dojo is closest at the time, and for the most part, simply enjoys life with his amazing wife and daughter.
Oh, and he draws ever now and then too.
This is a collection of things that he has managed to find the time to scribble down since 2007.
