What is a string splitter?

This tool splits the input string into pieces. You can switch between various splitting methods – using a character, a regular expression, a fragment length, or a number of parts. If you want to split a string by a specific symbol, select the "Split by a Character" option and enter the split symbol below it (by default, it's the space symbol). If you need more advanced control of splitting, choose the "Split by a Regular Expression" option. It allows you to fine-tune the matches and extract more complex chunks. If you need to get string fragments of a certain length, then select the "Split by Length" option and specify the number of characters you want in each part. If you need to get an exact number of chunks in the output, select the "Split in Multiple Parts" option and specify the number of parts you want to obtain. By default, the substrings are output one per line but you can set any character that joins them together in the options. You can also wrap the split substrings in any characters. For example, you can enclose them in quotes (e.g., "a", "b", "c") or wrap them in brackets (e.g., [a], [b], [c]) by specifying the left and right wrappers in the options. Stringabulous!


String splitter examples

Split a String Into Words

The given input string in this example is split by the space character into individual words. Every word is printed on its own line.

foo bar baz qux quux quuz corge grault garply waldo fred plugh xyzzy thud
foo bar baz qux quux quuz corge grault garply waldo fred plugh xyzzy thud
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Use this split character.
(Space by default.)
Use this join character in the
output (newline by default).
Left symbol.
Right symbol.

Split a String by a Regexp

This example splits a string into pieces by using a regular expression. The regular expression is \d+, which means "use one or more digits as separating symbols". As you can see, that's exactly what happens and the output is all substrings between the digits.

what1a2strange3example
what a strange example
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Use this regular expression.
(Multiple spaces by default.)
Use this join character in the
output (newline by default).
Left symbol.
Right symbol.

Split and Join by Another Symbol

Here we split the string by the "x" character and immediately join it back by the "y" character. What we effectively get is all occurrences of "x" replaced by "y".

one x two x three
one y two y three
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Use this split character.
(Space by default.)
Use this join character in the
output (newline by default).
Left symbol.
Right symbol.

Split a Phrase by a Length

In this example, we're splitting the input by length to get string fragments of the same width. We set the line width to 6 characters and display each substring on a new line. The last line has only two characters because the input length is not exactly divisible by 6.

Coffee in one hand. Confidence in the other.
Coffee in on e hand . Conf idence in th e othe r.
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Use this length for the pieces.
Use this join character in the
output (newline by default).
Left symbol.
Right symbol.

Split a String into 5 Equal Parts

In this example, we load the string "HELLO" spelled in its binary representation that consists of only ones and zeros. Since the string does not have a byte separator, it's difficult to tell where one byte ends and the next byte starts. To make it easier to understand, we split it into 5 equal parts (each part corresponds to one letter of the word "HELLO"). As a result, in the output, we get 5 space-separated bytes with 8 bits in each byte.

0100100001000101010011000100110001001111
01001000 01000101 01001100 01001100 01001111
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Use this number of equal parts.
Use this join character in the
output (newline by default).
Left symbol.
Right symbol.

Wrap the Substrings in Brackets

In this example, we split an idiomatic expression into words and then wrap them in square brackets. We use the regular expression-based split method and specify the regex "\s+" as the string delimiter. Once the string has been split into substrings, the symbol "[" is added before each substring and the symbol "]" is added after each substring.

The pen is mightier than the sword
[The] [pen] [is] [mightier] [than] [the] [sword]
Required options
These options will be used automatically if you select this example.
Use this regular expression.
(Multiple spaces by default.)
Use this join character in the
output (newline by default).
Left symbol.
Right symbol.
