It does, but I don't see how it contradicts my proposition. find() takes a substring as well.
Well, I'm not sure what your proposal was :-) Did you mean to keep split() out of the String interface, or to provide a default implementation of it based on find() and slicing?
If we stay minimalistic we could consider that the three basic operations that define a string are:
I argued that instead of split, find belongs into that list. (BTW, length inquiry would be a fourth.)
That the other methods, among them split, can be implemented in terms of those, follows from both sets of basic operations.
