Splitting strings

Have read Splitting Strings by Chris Zetter mini saga…

What this expression:

"".split(",")

shall produce?

Python, JS, Sciter (now):

"".split(",") -> [""]

Ruby, Perl, AWK, Sciter (while ago):

"".split(",") -> []

That reminded me that initially in Sciter I’ve implemented the function in Ruby/Perl way as it looked more natural at that moment.

And only recently redesigned the String.split() to follow JavaScript way.
