Tag.split(sep=None, maxsplit=-1)

Return a list of the substrings in the string, using sep as the separator string.


The separator used to split the string.

When set to None (the default value), will split on any whitespace character (including \n \r \t \f and spaces) and will discard empty strings from the result.


Maximum number of splits (starting from the left). -1 (the default value) means no limit.

Note, str.split() is mainly useful for data that has been intentionally delimited. With natural text that includes punctuation, consider using the regular expression module.
