Splitting a array

 9:07 pm on Jan 16, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi there people,

I'm going mad as this to me would seem easy to do, but I cannot fathom this out today:-

I read a file:-

FIRST_LINE, a value
SECOND_LINE, another value
THIRD_LINE, yet another value

Then that geat read into an array:-

FirstArray[0] = "FIRST_LINE, a value"
FirstArray[1] = "SECOND_LINE, another value"
FirstArray[1] = "THIRD_LINE, yet another value"

What I would like to know is, I would really prefer to have this data in this format:-

FirstArray[0] = "FIRST_LINE"
SecondArray[0] = " a value"
FirstArray[1] = "SECOND_LINE"
SecondArray[1] = "another value"
FirstArray[2] = "THIRD_LINE"
SecondArray[2] = "yet another value"

I can't see how to achieve this. Anyone would like to tell me why I can't see the wood for the trees please?

if all your data is in that particular format [val1, val2]
then try to explode each line.

foreach ($line as $data)
$temp = explode(",", $data);
$array1[] = $temp[0];
$array2[] = $temp[1];

note: this method will fail if either [FIRST_LINE] or [value]
contain (,) characters

Cheers omoutop,

I can't fathom out why I could't work this simple little snippet out! I guess it's because it was Monday and I'm tired ;)

That'll do nicely. I'll just tweek it so that I can do it dynamically, but that's cool.
