| When Size Does Matter |
// set string
var movie = "Four Weddings And A Funeral";
// print length
alert ("The length of the movie is " + movie.length + " characters");
This property can come in handy for operations which involve processing every character in a string (as you'll see shortly).
The String object also comes with a split() method, which can be used to decompose a single string into separate units on the basis of a particular separator value; these units are then placed into an array for further processing. Consider the following example, which demonstrates:
// set string
var friends = "Joey, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Ross, Phoebe";
// split into array using commas
var arr = friends.split(", ");
// iterate through array and print each value
for (x=0; x<arr.length; x++)
alert("Hiya, " + arr[x]);
