Python split with examples

Rsplit. Usually rsplit() is the same as split.
The only difference occurs when the second argument is specified. 
This limits the number of times a string is separated.

When we specify 3, 
we split off only three times from the right. 
This is the maximum number of splits that occur.
In [1]: s="Obama,President,USA,Ajay,cam,cyber"

In [2]: s.rsplit(",",3)
Out[2]: ['Obama,President,USA', 'Ajay', 'cam', 'cyber']

In [4]: s.split(",",3)
Out[4]: ['Obama', 'President', 'USA', 'Ajay,cam,cyber']

In [5]: s = "foo    bar   foobar foo"

In [7]: s.split(None,2)
Out[7]: ['foo', 'bar', 'foobar foo']
