I've noticed that everyone is using string.split. Is there a reason why
we aren't using the .split() function of strings? They work the same way
in all these examples, so I was wondering was this because they aren't
supported in python 1.5?
>>> line = 'Hi, my name is Joal.'
>>> f1,f2,f3,f4,f5,f6 = map(lambda x,y:x, line.split(),6*[None])
Joal Heagney is: _____ _____
/\ _ __ __ _ | | _ ___ |
/__\|\ || ||__ |\ || |___|/_\|___] |
/ \ \_||__ ||___| \_|! | | \ \ !
