Idiom #49 Split a space-separated string

Build list chunks consisting in substrings of input string s, separated by one or more space characters.

Illustration
(define (tokenize l)
  (let loop ((t '())
             (l l))
    (if (pair? l)
        (let ((c (car l)))
          (if (char=? c #\space)
              (cons (reverse t) (loop '() (cdr l)))
              (loop (cons (car l) t) (cdr l))))
        (if (null? t)
            '()
            (list (reverse t))))))

(define (string-split s)
  (map list->string (tokenize (string->list s))))
#include <string.h>
chunks[0] = strtok(s, " ");
for (int i = 1; i < N; ++i)
{
    chunks[i] = strtok(NULL, " ");
    
    if (!chunks[i])
        break;
}
import std.range;
auto chunks = s.splitter;
s.split(new RegExp('\\s+'))
chunks = String.split(s)
Chunks = string:tokens(S, [$\s]).
import "strings"
chunks := strings.Split(s, " ")
import "strings"
chunks := strings.Fields(s)
chunks = words s
var chunks = s.split(/ +/);
String[] chunks = s.split("\\s+");
chunks = {}
for substring in s:gmatch("%S+") do
   table.insert(chunks, substring)
end
$chunks = preg_split("/ +/", $s);
Uses Classes;
chunks.StrictDelimiter := True;
chunks.Delimiter := ' ';
chunks.DelimitedText := s;
@chunks = split /\s+/, $s;
chunks = s.split()
chunks = s.split
let chunks:Vec<_>=s.split_whitespace().collect();

Do you know the best way to do this in your language ?
