There is nothing special about " " (see gmax's example above). You are confusing it with ' '.

I don't understand how gmax example shows it. Could you provide us with a single string on which splitting with " " produces a different result than splitting with ' '?

It would be very, very strange if split produces different results, because the difference between " " and ' ' has disappeared long before split is called. After compile time, the difference between " " and ' ' is gone.

    Sorry

    I always thought that the 'magic' of ' ' was limited to single quotes. And a total misreading of this line:

    for ( " ", '\s', '\s+' ) {

    in gmax's code seemed to bear out my fallacy.

    Remark withdrawn, with apologies.

    :( dave
