vecs ← seps ##.segs vec                     ⍝ ⍺-separated segments of vector ⍵.

Right argument [vec] is partitioned at items in left argument array  [seps].  In

- separator items are removed from each result segment.
- adjacent separators in [vec] are treated as if only one had been present.

NB:  with  the introduction of primitive function ⊆ in Dyalog V16, the coding of
this function is just {(~⍵∊⍺)⊆⍵} or ((~∊)⍨)⊆⊢.

These effects are illustrated by the following example:

    wds ← ' '∘segs                      ⍝ blank-separated words.

    wds 'ready steady      go'          ⍝ three words.
