I Need to install split() on php7

Recommended Posts

I moved my website to an server and installed php7, but now 50% of data processing dosnt work anymore because split isnt working, how can i migrate split to php7 ?

Or how can i accomplish that older functions still work in php7 ?

yes, thank you for that, but id like to change the name for 

  • preg_split() to split() in the php lib or install php 5 alongside with 7 without losing 7 as the standart and not to be informed in the fact that its removed/ deprecated

Don't. Stuff gets removed for good reasons and adding them back in is counter-productive.

 

Just fix the damn code.

Search for "split". Any good IDE will be able to search an entire project/folder architecture for that, and it's not likely to appear in many places.

Ok, ill do it; what will work out the best for me?

Sometimes I have:
 

Split("\n", $foo);
#and 
Split("\|", $bar);

split() worked using POSIX regular expressions, so you might need to look up what you find sometimes.

 

However \n is a literal character and doesn't need regular expressions.

explode("\n", $foo)
"\|" is a literal pipe character and doesn't need regular expressions either.

explode("|", $bar)

your time might be better spent properly implementing the site using data driven, server-side programming, so that there are only a few instances of any functional logic, that can be easily updated.
