SplitBy

SplitBy[list,f]

splits list into sublists consisting of runs of successive elements that give the same value when f is applied.

SplitBy[list,{f1,f2,}]

recursively splits list into sublists by testing elements successively with each of the fi.

Details

  • SplitBy[list,] splits but does not rearrange list.
  • SplitBy performs comparisons only on adjacent pairs of elements.
  • SplitBy[list] is equivalent to SplitBy[list,Identity], which is also equivalent to Split[list].
  • SplitBy[list,{f1,f2}] is equivalent to Map[SplitBy[#,f2]&,SplitBy[list,f1]].
