itertools.chunks(iterable, size=None, separator=None, fill=None)
Requiring at leas one of size or separator to be set?
This would also work for "for x in text.split('\n')" case.
I think that splitting an iterable on some separators or on a chunck size are two completely different functions. Having the same function do either is a bit confusing and I don’t see the benefit.
Or is there an use case in passing both parameters? What would it do then, end the chunck after `size` elements or at `separator`, whichever comes first?
