Splitting a string is needed whenever you wish to take a specific part of the string after a specific character. Suppose I have string (“Hello: Hunny I just make you call, cell was out or range”), I want to pick this specific part of the string after the sign(:). Better way is to use explode here to save time and split string into string.

1
$originalString     =    “Hello: Hunny I just make you call, cell was out of range”; $returnString      =          explode(:’,$originalString);

Output: Array ( [0] => Hello [1] => Hunny I just make you call, cell was out of range ) I have second example here, Suppose I have a list of names separated with spaces, I want to separate all the names using explode().

$names =             "Rizwan Mudasir Salman Azam Nauman Hassan Awais";

$split     =             explode(" ",$names);   echo $split[0]; echo '<br />'; echo $split[3]; echo '<br />'; echo $split[4]; echo '<br />';

echo $split[5];

This was with the array. Let us play with Lists. I have here a simple example of list using explode().

echo '<hr /><h3>Lets Play with Lists</h3>';

$originalList        =             "mudasir:123:Engineer:ComputerSneaker";

list($name,$pass,$pro,$website)=  explode(":",$originalList);

echo '<br/>'.$name; echo '<br/>'.$pass;

echo '<br/>'.$pro;

echo '<br/>'.$website;

And my last example is for limit parameters. Let’s have a look at the followi9ng example.

echo                                    '<hr /><h3>Using Limit Parameters</h3>';

$originalString  =             "Name|Pass|Profession|Web";

$newString         =             explode("|",$originalString,1); print_r($newString);

In the end I have complete code here that I have used, You can make necessary changes into it and can use this code.

$originalString    =     "Hello: Hunny I just make you call, cell was out of range";

$returnString       =             explode(':',$originalString); print_r($returnString); echo '<hr />';

$names  =             "Rizwan Mudasir Salman Azam Nauman Hassan Awais";

$split     =             explode(" ",$names);

echo $split[0]; echo '<br />';

echo $split[3]; echo '<br />';

echo $split[4];echo '<br />';

echo $split[5];

echo '<hr /><h3>Lets Play with Lists</h3>';

$originalList        =             "mudasir:123:Engineer:ComputerSneaker";

list($name,$pass,$pro,$website)=          explode(":",$originalList); echo '<br/>'.$name;

echo '<br/>'.$pass; echo '<br/>'.$pro; echo '<br/>'.$website;

echo '<hr /><h3>Using Limit Parameters</h3>';

$originalString  =             "Name|Pass|Profession|Web";

$newString          =             explode("|",$originalString,1); print_r($newString);

Here is the output of above code.
