question about Split[...]


the question...

How can i restrict the maximum length of the sublist generated by the
function Split[list, test] ?


In details...

  i need to subdivise a given list into sublists consisting into a given
form (here it's p), repeated AT MAXIMUM k times, and then the
just-following  element in the initial list :

something like {p,... k times...,p, next})

i've found -- Split [ll, #1 == p &] -- useful but don't know how to limit 
the length of the generated sublists (to k+1)


 thanks a lot
