PHP convert string into an array

Write a program to convert the given string into an array.

Suppose the string is -

$a = 'Burch Jr, Philip H., The American establishment, Research in political economy 6(1983), 83-156';

Solution

Sometimes, arrays are not used to store information; instead, a string is used. The single values are all within the string, but are separated by a special character.

The following example convert string into array -

<?php
$csvdata = 'Burch Jr, Philip H., The American establishment, Research in political economy 6(1983), 83-156';
$a = explode(',', $csvdata);
$info = print_r($a, true);
echo "<pre>$info</pre>";
?>

The PHP function explode() creates an array out of these values, you just have to provide the character(s) at which the string needs to be split.

Output of the above code -

Array
(
    [0] => Burch Jr
    [1] =>  Philip H.
    [2] =>  The American establishment
    [3] =>  Research in political economy 6 (1983)
    [4] =>  83-156
)
