ycl ns split
An implementation of namespace split, as described below.


namespace split can be trivially implemented using ycl regsplit:

package require {ycl string}
namespace import [yclprefix]::string::regsplit

proc nssplit ns {
    regsplit ::* ns
    lmap {val delim} $ns[set ns {}] {
        lindex $val


puts [nssplit {::one::two three::::four::five::}]
# -> {} one {two three} four five {}
