While learning Python I've come across this several times, but I've never been able to get it to work, so I always work around it. No more I say! I'm using 3.1, so I'm assuming that string.split doesn't work in 3.0 and later.
Say I want to split "Why does string.split() not work?" into ["Why", "does", "string.split()", "not", "work?"].
I'm told to use:
a = "Why does string.split() not work?" string.split(a) print("SUCCESS!", a)
NameError: name 'string' is not defined
No dice. So what do I use instead of the string.split() that these old tutorials constantly advocate?
