[tpm] Split a string in half

Hi all,

   I need to split a sting in half, and I can assume the the middle 
character in the string will be a space ' ' character. I cannot predict 
how many spaces will be in the string though.

   In short; How could I split:

'foo bar foo bar' => 'foo bar', 'foo bar'
'baz baz'         => 'baz', baz'
'foo bar baz foo bar baz' => 'foo bar baz', 'foo bar baz'

   In Detail;

   I use WWW::Mechanize, and I am running into a problem with a website 
that uses an image and text in a single anchor. Specifically, the alt 
text is the same as the text, so the 'find_all_links' function returns:

foo bar foo bar


<a href="..."><img src="..." alt="foo bar"> foo bar</a>

   I never know what the link will be, only that the alt and text will 
be that same.
