How to spilt a column of a data frame into multiple columns

0 votes

Data is in this form:

df1<-data.frame(index=c(1,2,4,6,8), drive=c("low_and_high","low_and_high_2)
index          drive
1     1   low_and_high
2     2 low_and_high_2
3     4   low_and_high
4     6 low_and_high_2

by using some function I want to generate this output:

index drive_1 drive_2
1    1    low    high
2    2    low  high_2
3    4    low    high
4    6    low  high_2

Thanks in Advance!

it is easily achievable by using "stringr" library:

library(stringr)
str_split_fixed(df1$drive, "_and_", 2)

Output:
[,1]  [,2]    
[1,] "low" "high"  
[2,] "low" "high_2"
[3,] "low" "high"  
[4,] "low" "high_2"
