Missing split option?

This morning it seemed natural enough to me to take this data:

ID    Name      Email
101   Richard   rg at somedomain.com

...and turn that into an array where the first line determines the key 
names and the second line consists of the values using this:

   split tData by column with cr and tab

I found that when splitting by column the "with" clause throws an error.

Such cases are for data so small that I don't mind writing a loop to 
create the array.  But it seems common enough that I would imagine 
others have tried this and met with similar disappointment that it's not 
already built in.

Or is it?  Is there some other syntax I might try to do that?
