SPL


SPL Split Area __________________
SPLITAREA divides an existing Area within the main Text or Work
Space of a file, into two Areas.


iip SPLitArea <___>°


NOTES _____
When SPLITAREA is issued, an *END OF TEXT AREA* and a *START OF
iip TEXT AREA* line is inserted after the <___>, and the user's
display point is set to the *START OF TEXT AREA* line which is
the top of the next Area (the one after the split point).
The only way to access the new Area (once it is left) without a
Label, Splice, or Jump into it, is through the Structure Space
(unless the Area is the last one in which case BOTTOM could be
used).
SPLITAREA and NAREA differ only in that the former splits the
current Area in two, while the latter creates a brand new,
empty Area.
SPLITAREA is useful when the user wishes to isolate text
already in the file.
