Missing split option?

Splitting by column or row uses the rowdelimiter and columndelimiter 
properties, which are cr and tab by default, but you can change them. In 
your example you wouldn't need to.

But splitting by column won't give what you want, I don't think. If I 
remember right it will give a numbered array with each element being the 
contents of a column.
