I am sure this has been done already by somebody, but I just can't figure out a simple way...

I have 1 Feature class that contains several polygons (let it be 10).
And I want each of these polygons to become a separate feature class.
As a result I want 10 new feature classes.

Maybe anyone has seen a ready script?
Or I should better use Model Builder for this?

use http://resources.arcgis.com/gallery/file/geoprocessing/details?entryID=37AEB018-1422-2418-A036-CA6D9...
with the FID field as the attribute field.  Direct inputs and outputs to folders and not a gdb

The Split tool can be an alternative:

You can try to use the same feature class as both Input Features and Split Features. You need to have a text field with unique values for the polygons; these values become output names.

1812, Dan_Patterson - thank you very much!
That's exactly what I was looking for! Both, Split tool for users with ArcInfo and Dan's tool for all the rest.
When having some time, surely I will also get acquainted with iterators )
