    Build Status

    Creates an object structure based on a Path defined in an Array structure or String written in dot notation, e.g. 'objParent.objChild.objDeep', or with any delimiter that can be defined as a parameter, e.g. 'objParent|objChild|objDeep'. It can return a new object or create the path into an existing one. A value can be defined to be set into the deepest object's property.
