    • 0 (default) - The number of words found will be returned as an integer Number.
    • 1 - An Array will be returned, containing all the words found inside subject.
    • 2 - An Array will be returned just like if the value is 1, but each Array key will be the numeric position inside subject that the word is found at.
  • String charlist - A list of additional characters to be considered as "word".


    • Number - The number of words in subject, if format is 0.
    • Array - The words found inside subject, if format is 1 or 2.
