Dear group, 

could some one help me how i can split a string into
pieces and access them.

For example:
> test = "this is a test"
> typeof(test)
[1] "character"

> strsplit(test,split='is')
[1] "th"      " "       " a test"

Now I want to get test into : a vector and another
object as list

Also, could you please point out some good tutorials
on character manipulations. 

Thank you.
