Command Reference: jsplit

Splits STDIN into a JSON array based on a regex parameter

Description

jsplit will read from STDIN and split it based on a regex parameter. It outputs a JSON array.

Usage

<STDIN> -> jsplit: regex -> <stdout>

Examples

» (hello, world) -> jsplit: l+ 
[
    "he",
    "o, wor",
    "d"
]

Detail

jsplit will trim trailing carriage returns and line feeds from each element as well as any trailing empty elements (zero length strings) in the JSON array. However any empty elements will be retained and any other whitespace characters - or carriage returns and/or line feeds in the middle of an element - will be retained.

This is so that the formatting of (multiline) text is retained as much as possible to ensure the jsplit is accurate while at the same time any commonly unwanted "noise" is stripped from the output.
