Let us understand these two function first.

  • explode () function: explode () function is inbuilt function of php and used to break the strings in array. This function splits the string based on string delimiter. The function returns an array containing string formed by breaking original string.
  • preg_split () function: work of this function is same like explode () function, expect regular expressions are accepted as input parameters for patterns.

// Use preg_split() function
$string = "13,5050,458, 04, 099";
$str_arre = preg_split ("/,/", $string);
// use of explode
$string = "0120, 87, 2, 45454, 000";
$str_arre = explode (",", $string);

  5. In first case, that is preg_split, we create a string. You can see how we create this in our codes. And stored them in a variable named string also. Then we use preg_split function and use some regular expression and apply them to $string in which we store our main string. And at last we print that string with the help of print_r() function.
  6. Now, after preg_split there is explode function used. In explode, we add some strings in $string variable and then as same in preg_split function we apply explode function and then print the stored value of explode function through $str_arre.
  7. We hope that you understand the codes properly with the help of steps given above.
