I want my Python function to split a sentence (input) and store each word in a list. My current code splits the sentence but does not store the words as a list. How do I do that?

def split_line(text): 

     # split the text

     words = text.split()

     # for each word in the line:

     for word in words:

         # print the word

The following code splits the string in the text on any consecutive runs of whitespace:-

words = text.split()

By using the below-mentioned code you can split the string in the text on delimiter: ",":-

words = text.split(",")

And the words variable will be a list and it will contain the words from text split on the delimiter.
