Parameters: This function accepts three parameters as shown in the above syntax and are described below:

  1. $string: This parameter specifies a string which is needed to be chunked.
  2. $length: This parameter specifies an integer which specifies the chunk length. That is the length of the chunked parts.
  3. $end: This parameter specifies the line ending sequence.

Return value: This function returns the string spllited into smaller chunks.

Examples:



Input : string = "geeksforgeeks" 
        length = 4
        end = "."
Output: Geek.sfor.Geek.s. 


Input: string = "Twinkle bajaj" 
       length = 2 
       end = "*" 
Output: Tw*in*kl*e *ba*ja*j*
