Explode Function in PHP
In this article, we will discuss PHP explode() function. It is used to splits a string into array elements. We must pass two arguments for this function, one is character and another one is array name. Let’s see the example code:
<?php $str = 'red, green, blue, orange'; // define string //convert string to array $arr = explode(',' , $str); print_r($arr); ?>
Array (  => red => green  =>blue => orange)
- In the above code, we have created a string “$str” and assigned some colors as values separated with a comma (,).
- If we want to convert that into an array, we need to use explode() function and pass a comma and $str.
- Then we print the variable “$arr”. See the above output, a string is converted to an array successfully.
