PHP split() Function

​​​



Hello dear readers! welcome back to another section of my tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we will be discussing about the PHP split() Function.

The split() function will divide a string into various elements, the boundaries of each element in string based on the occurrence of pattern in string.

The optional input parameter limit is used to signify the number number of elements into which the string needs to be divided, starting from the left end of the string and moving rightward.

In cases where the pattern is an alphabetical character, the split() is case sensitive.
