The JavaScript split() string method is used to split a string into an array of substrings and returns a new array. The original string is not modified. If an empty string ("") is passed to the split() method, then the string is split between each character.

For example:

var example_string = "Split me up!";
var returned_array_of_substrings = example_string.split("");

This example prints "S,p,l,i, ,m,e, ,u,p" to the screen.
