   Dear R-users,

   The strsplit function does not exist in S-plus and I would like to
use it. How
   could I reproduce the function in Splus or access to its source code?

   Thank you in advance,


strsplit() was added to S+ 8.0 (May 2007).  At the same time
we changed the default regular expression style from 'basic'
(a.k.a. 'obsolete') to 'extended' and we added the string functions
sub(), gsub(), and sprintf().

S+ 8.1 is now available (as of November 2008).
