[Haskell-cafe] Missing join and split

I am really missing the (general) split function built in standard
Haskell. I do not understand why there is something so specific as
words and lines but not a simple split? The same goes for join.

Yes, I can of course define them but ... in an interactive mode it
would be quite handy to have them there.

Or am I wrong and are those hidden somewhere?

So what are common ways to get around this? What are elegant
definitions? Inline definitions?
