Python String split() Method

Hello dear readers! Welcome back to another edition of our tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the Python String split() method.

The Python string split() method returns a list of all the words in the string, using str as the separator (splits on all whitespace if it is left unspecified), optionally limiting the number of the splits to num.


The following below is the syntax for Python String split() method -

str.split(str=" ",  num=string.count(str) )

Parameter Details

  • str - This is the splitter, by default it is space.
  • num - This is number of lines minus one.

Return Value

Returns a list of lines.


The following below is a simple example -


str = "Line1-abcdef \nLine2-abc \nLine4-abcd";
print str.split( )
print str.split(' ', 1 )

Below is the output of the above example -

['Line1-abcdef', 'Line2-abc', 'Line4-abcd']
['Line1-abcdef', '\nLine2-abc \nLine4-abcd']
