Sample Solution:-

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Split a string and convert it into an array of words.</title>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

string_to_array = function (str) {
     return str.trim().split(" ");
};
console.log(string_to_array("Robin Singh"));

Sample Output:

["Robin","Singh"]

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Returns the number of times a function executed per second. hz is the unit for hertz, the unit of frequency defined as one cycle per second

Example:

const tips_hz = (fn, iterations = 100) => {
  const before = performance.now();
  for (let i = 0; i < iterations; i++) fn();
  return (1000 * iterations) / (performance.now() - before);
};
// 10,000 element array
const numbers = Array(10000)
  .fill()
  .map((_, i) => i);

// Test functions with the same goal: sum up the elements in the array
const sumReduce = () => numbers.reduce((acc, n) => acc + n, 0);
const sumForLoop = () => {
  let sum = 0;
  for (let i = 0; i < numbers.length; i++) sum += numbers[i];
  return sum;
};

// 'sumForLoop' is nearly 10 times faster
console.log(Math.round(tips_hz(sumReduce))); 
console.log(Math.round(tips_hz(sumForLoop)));

Output:

4004
