Split a string with unknown number of spaces as separator in Python [duplicate]

If you don’t pass any arguments to str.split(), it will treat runs of whitespace as a single separator:

>>> ' 1234    Q-24 2010-11-29         563   abc  a6G47er15'.split()
['1234', 'Q-24', '2010-11-29', '563', 'abc', 'a6G47er15']
