How to separate characters from a string in R?

6

I have values a string containing a date "01/01/2000" I want to separate the day, month and year.

#Data
#01/01/2000

#Dia Mês  Ano
#01   01 2000

How do I do this in R?

Try this way:

unlist(strsplit("01/01/2000", "[/]"))

or

> strsplit("01/01/2000", "/")

For any string-related transformation I suggest stringr . The function str_split always returns a list, regardless if it receives a vector with 1 or more elements.

> stringr::str_split(rep('01/01/2000', 5), '/')
