digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 16288] New: splitter() that doesn't eat sentinels


          Issue ID: 16288
           Summary: splitter() that doesn't eat sentinels
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

          Reporter: turkeyman gmail.com

I want a version of splitter that doesn't eat the sentinels.
I want to split AT the sentinels, but the sentinel should be the first
element of the bucket.

eg: assert(equal(splitter("hello  world", ' '), [ "hello", " ", " world" ]));

Note the weird behaviour since there are 2 spaces. More useful when
the data is not strings.
