split is also very handy in such cases, where the string contains values that are separated by a particular character or characters.

    And to hammer home this point, many mistake the first parameter of split to be a simple string, when in fact it is a regex! Be sure to read what PATTERN will do for you.

    Incidentally, split can also be used as a way to trim.
