Kotlin – Split string by single space character

To split a string by single space character as separator in Kotlin, you can use String.split() function.

Call split() function on the string, and pass the single space character ' ', as argument to the function. The function returns a list of split parts.


If str is the given string and the values in it are separated by space character, then the syntax to split this string into a list of values is

str.split(' ')

    val str = "apple banana cherry mango"
    val parts = str.split(' ')
