# Question with split by block

When I run , I get . Is the fact that item 2 of the list is empty a bug or intended? I would have expected having two or more of the letter being split next to one another would be have the same as one of letter, so 'helo' world, 'hello world', and 'helllo world' would return the same result.

This is how the underlying Javascript procedure behaves. Think about a csv with two commas in a row; that means that one field is empty, and you wouldn't want all the later fields shifted left.

Some of the special second inputs that are in the pulldown menu take trouble to behave the way you're expecting; in particular, split by word treats any amount of whitespace as one delimiter.
