Specify Two Split Conditions in strsplit() Function in R (Example Code)

In this article, I’ll explain how to set multiple split conditions in the strsplit function in R.

Creation of Example Data

x <- "A_B-C_D-E-F"        # Character string in R
x                         # Display example character string in RStudio console
# [1] "A_B-C_D-E-F"

Example: How to Define Several Arguments in strsplit() Function

strsplit(x, "_|-")        # Using multiple arguments in strsplit function
# [[1]]
# [1] "A" "B" "C" "D" "E" "F"
