PHP split() Function

PHP split() Function


Hello folks! welcome back to a new section of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP split() Function.

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

The optional input parameter limit is used for signifying the number of elements into which the string should be divided, starting from the left end of the string and working rightward.

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


Syntax

The following is the syntax for the split() function -

array split (string pattern, string string  [, int limit]);

Return Value

  • This PHP function returns an array of strings after splitting up a string.

Example

Following is a simple example -

<?php

   $ip = "123.456.789.000"; // some IP address
   $iparr = split ("\.", $ip); 
   
   print "$iparr[0] <br />";
   print "$iparr[1] <br />" ;
   print "$iparr[2] <br />"  ;
   print "$iparr[3] <br />"  ;

?>

Output

When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

123
456
789
000
