The following might not be the simpler way you were expected; still, it
might be a source of inspiration :)
lst = {1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0};
myPart[target_List, source_List] /; Length@target == Length@source :=
Take[target, #] & /@
Thread[{PadLeft[Most@# + 1, Length@#, 1], #} &[
Flatten@Position[source, 1]]]
myPart[lst, lst]
returns {{1}, {0, 0, 1}, {0, 0, 1}, {1}, {0, 1}, {0, 0, 0, 0, 1}}
(Note that in the case where the source and target lists are the same
Split[lst, (#1 != 1) &] would be enough to get the desired result.)
Also, in the example you provided, the last sequence of running zeros is
not taken into account. Is this desired?
