Strings play a very important role in programming and should be handled carefully to avoid getting any errors. Many programming languages like Strings have built in functions that help the user to modify a piece of string as per the requirements of the code. Strings has a built in split function which allows the user to subset a piece of string. Using the split function, one can extract multiple portions separately from a single piece of string.
The split () function allows you to split a string and return the results in a table, using a string defined as a separator.
In the example below, the split () can cut the date according to the character '/':
var date = '26/02/2009';
var elem = uneDate.split('/');
day = elem;
month = elem;
year = elem;
