numpy.array_split(ary, indices_or_sections, axis=0)[source]

Split an array into multiple sub-arrays.

Please refer to the split documentation. The only difference between these functions is that array_split allows indices_or_sections to be an integer that does not equally divide the axis. For an array of length l that should be split into n sections, it returns l % n sub-arrays of size l//n + 1 and the rest of size l//n.
