Explode or split string and display array

Posted under » PHP on 31 January 2011

Returns an array of strings, each of which is a substring of string formed by splitting it on boundaries formed by the string delimiter.

Basic example

$pizza  = "piece1 piece2 piece3 piece4 piece5 piece6";
$pieces = explode(" ", $pizza);
echo $pieces[0]; // piece1
echo $pieces[1]; // piece2

Limit parameter example

$str = 'one|two|three|four';
// positive limit
print_r(explode('|', $str, 2));

Take note that split() is depreciated in PHP7.
