I've just endorsed it :-) The kicker was that your module is commented
with a three-hyphen first line. If I have my module "ihelp" loaded as "help",
then "help(split.split)" gives me

--- split(string, delimiter) => { results }
-- Return a table composed of substrings divided by a delimiter or pattern.
