explode on whitespace

I'm assuming this is an easy question and I'm just missing something.
I need to be able to explode a string on whitespace. The issue here is
that I want to explode it such that all contiguous whitespace is one
explode point. For example the following strings would all produce
the same array of "words":

This is a test.
This is a test.
This\tis a test.
This\t \tis a test.

Thoughts?

You mean preg_split('/\s+/', $str);

\d is numeric characters.
