Thanks for your reply!

A quick question dealing with the internal workings of what you wrote:

I understand that the split function can take any expression as its element then operate on the scalar, but what would be the more nuanced differences, particularly with memory usage and processing speed, if any, between using split and a general pattern match?

Thanks!
