Help! My Completely Automated Lights From Darks Separator V3001.01 broke! :(

Guidelines


Task

Write a program that will take an input of an array (or a list in some languages) of any amount of strings that are either the letter L or the letter D (representing lights or darks) and output an array that contains two arrays, one with all the L's, and one with all the D's.


Rules

  • It's code golf so the shortest answer in bytes wins
  • Input will only ever contain capitals
  • There must be the same number of L's in the output as there is in the input, same goes for the D's
  • The input may only have one element (or maybe even zero elements)
  • If one or both of the output arrays contain no elements, output an empty list (in some languages this may mean you need to output a string)
  • Always have the first array be the array of L's

Example output:

["L","D","L","D","D"] -> [["L","L"],["D","D","D"]]

["L","L","L"] -> [["L","L","L"],[]]

["D","D"] -> [[],["D","D"]]

[] -> [[],[]]

    \$\begingroup\$ Can we input/output as a string? For example: "LDLDD" -> "LL DDD" or something like that? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Or output perhaps as a list of the two strings, e.g. `"LDLDD" -> ["LL", "DDD"] \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ How about mixed output? As in an array containing one string and one array of strings? e.g., ["L","L",["D","D","D"]]. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ No, the output must be an array/list. @ComradeSparklePony \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Hello and welcome to the site! We do not allow answers that assume a variable as input, we call these snippets. Instead format your answer as a function (named on unnamed), or a full program with IO. \$\endgroup\$
