Subject: [erlang-questions] splitting string into to substring


Hi All, 

I am new to erlang and I want to write Erlang function that given a
string and a pattern and uses the pattern to split the string into like
this: 

For example if the pattern is "ab" and the string is "acabcabts" the code will return ["ac", "cabts"]. 

If the pattern is "bc" and the string is "bcad" the code returns ["", ad]. 

If the pattern is "ac" and the string is "bcad" the code will return ["bcad", ""]. 

I'm trying to make function using  list but still stuck there. Can anybody help me? Thank's so much.
