Hi, I think the following behavior of the build in function 'split' is inconsistent. What do you think? >>> "".split()  >>> "".split(";") [''] I'm using python 2.3.3 on Windows 2000. (Perl's split only returns all items up to the last non-empty item, e.g. <perl>split /;/, "; ;;;"; gets you ['', ' ']. I find this confusing, too).
