Python has in-built string split function which can be used to split a string on any delimiter and return a python list (array). If no delimiter is specified then it uses in built algorithm to split on all whitespace character sequence. Here are some examples.
Split string on space
## 2 spaces between python and world s = "Hello python world" a = s.split(' ') print a
Split string on space with max split limit
Note that a split limit of 2 will result in max 3 elements in array.
s = "Hello python world again" a = s.split(' ', 2) print a
Split string without delimiter
Without delimiter python splits string on whitespace sequence (considering all contiguous whitespace as one). It is better to specify the delimiter explicitly though.
## string with multiple spaces and newline s = "Hello python world\nagain" a = s.split() print a
