Your link did not take me to the code you reference... Google does not make entire books available online which may have something to do with my difficulty. This is one reason the Posting Guide asks you to post a self-contained, reproducible example. Your use of HTML format in your posting to the list was also a making it hard to follow.
I did find a ZIP file at [1], and the arguments do not conform to the survSplit documentation. Since I have not been a user of this package over time, I don't know whether this is due to changes in the argument list or a simple error on the part of the author... but I suspect the latter because the missing formula specification seems intrinsic to the intent of the function.
Someone else may chime in with a more conclusive comment, but I would recommend finding a different tutorial on the topic, or corresponding with Mr.Wollschlaeger.
