Split an ANSI colored string

This is the color-aware counterpart of base::strsplit. It works almost exactly like the original, but keeps the colors in the substrings.

Usage
col_strsplit(x, split, ...)
Arguments
x
Character vector, potentially ANSI styled, or a vector to coarced to character.
split
Character vector of length 1 (or object which can be coerced to such) containing regular expression(s) (unless fixed = TRUE) to use for splitting. If empty matches occur, in particular if split has zero characters, x is split into single characters.
...
Extra arguments are passed to base::strsplit.
Value

A list of the same length as x, the $i$-th element of which contains the vector of splits of x[i]. ANSI styles are retained.
