ES2016 Draft 1

ES2016 Draft 2015-10-19

String.prototype.split has been reverted to ES5 semantics.

The limit parameter is now coerced using ToUint32 instead of ToLength.

  • ES5 (15.5.4.14.5): If limit is undefined, let lim = 2**32-1; else let lim = ToUint32(limit).
  • ES6 (21.1.3.17.8): If limit is undefined, let lim = 2**53-1; else let lim = ToLength(limit).

Notes: 6.12 String.prototype.split, its limit argument, and ToLength vs ToUint32 Commmits: Revert String.prototype.split's to ES5 behavior · tc39/ecma262@bfe9e11
