Reading lines into an array

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

    I am parsing an ini file for some data about the user, and I want to extract every line (and place it in an array as an array element). These lines are located in a javascript array. Here is what the text looks like

var NeededText =new Array(
"Needed-A",
"Needed-B",
"Needed-C"
);

So how can I get Needed-A, Needed-B & Needed-C in an array using php?

Any help would be appreciated.

The file() function http://www.php.net/file will take the contents of a file and read it into an array with one line per array element.

Thanks for the fast reply. Appreciate that very much, but, could you help me further by telling me how can I extract the specified strings? should the script simply scan for a start and a finish string and create a secondary array?


Thanks for your help.

Assume you have read your file into array (line by line) with name $myLines. You could write each line to the screen ,and do something else you wanted to, with something line:
[code]
for ($i=0; $i < count($myLines); $i++) {
    echo $myLines[$i].'<br />';
   //  do something else with this line
}
[/code]
