ListTools

 Split
 split a list into an expression sequence of lists

 Calling Sequence Split(f, L, opts, ...) Split[N](f, opt, ..., opt[N-1], L, opts, ...)

Parameters

 L - list f - procedure N - positive integer opts - (optional) options to procedure f

Description

 • The Split(f, L) function splits list L at positions where procedure f returns true. The value of procedure f is determined by the expression $f\left(x\right)$ evaluated for each element x of list L.
 The Split(f, L, opts) function performs in a similar manner, except that the value of procedure f is determined by the expression $f\left(x,\mathrm{opts}\right)$.
 • If Split is indexed by a positive integer N, the expression $f\left({\mathrm{opt}}_{1},...,{\mathrm{opt}}_{N-1},x,\mathrm{opts}\right)$ is evaluated for each list element x.
