Split string to list python

Python has a built-in function called split() that can be used to split a string into a list of substrings. The split() function takes a string and a delimiter as arguments and returns a list of substrings. The delimiter can be any character, such as a space, a comma, or a tab.
my_str = "This is a string"

comma_str = "Apple, Banana, Orange"
print(comma_str.split(", "))

In the above code examples, the first example splits a string into a list of substrings based on whitespace. The second example does the same but uses a comma and space as the delimiter.
