If you split on an empty delimiter, you get the characters
individually.  E.g., "12345".split('') gives you ["1", "2", "3", "4",
"5"].

Let us know how you do with the "get the sum of the digits" problem.
It's a good opportunity for you to learn some interesting concepts in
"functional programming" and some of the bizarrer-looking magic of
Ruby.  See how short you can make the solution....  :-)
