Remove spaces

Recommended Posts

[code]
<?php
$file=file('dict.txt');
$file=str_replace(' ','',$file);
foreach ($file as $file){
$file2=str_replace(' ','',$file);
echo $file2;
}
?>
[/code]

The file dict.txt has 1 word on every line, no spaces after them. This bit of code echoes spaces between every word but there are no spaces in the file! I tried replacing them with nothing as you see in the code but that wont work!


What should I do?

thx!

The "spaces" you are seeing are really the newline characters at the end of each line. HTML will display newline characters as a space. Use the trim() function to remove the newline character before echoing the string:
[code]<?php
$file=file('dict.txt');
foreach ($file as $file2)
   echo trim($file2);
?>[/code]
