rsplit(string, [chars]; limit=0, keep=true)

Similar to split, but starting from the end of the string.


  1. Split a string into an array of substrings from the end:

    julia> rsplit("Hello World", " ")
    2-element Array{SubString{String},1}:

    This example splits the string "Hello World" into an array of substrings at the space character from the end of the string.

  2. Limit the number of splits:

    julia> rsplit("a,b,c,d,e", ",", limit=2)
    3-element Array{SubString{String},1}:

    It limits the number of splits to 2, resulting in an array of 3 substrings.

  3. Keep empty substrings:
    julia> rsplit("apples,oranges,,bananas", ",", keep=true)
    4-element Array{SubString{String},1}:

    It includes empty substrings in the resulting array.

Common mistake example:

julia> rsplit("Hello World", limit=2)
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching rsplit(::String; limit=2)

In this example, the rsplit function is called without specifying the separator. It's important to provide the separator as the second argument to rsplit when using the limit keyword argument.
