Im trying to evaluate a string representation of the output of
as an array.
To make a long story short, Im using curl to fetch another php page,
that uses var_export to echo out php data structures.
The fetched data via curl, is a string. Something like ->
array ( 'foo' => 'bar', )
something LIKE? or exactly that?
anyway I don't have problems with this...
php -r '
eval("\$arr = array ( \"foo\" => \"bar\", );");
$arr1 = var_export($arr, true);
eval("\$arr2 = $arr1;");
...took me a couple of
mins to figure out how you could be....
I would like to convert this to a real array.
Im currently trying this ->
$ret = curl_exec($this->curl_handle);
$str = '$array = $ret;';
this is your problems. its to do with string interpolation.
your exec() call is equivelant to
$array = $ret;
guess what that makes $array?
so it should be:
exec("\$array = $ret;");
which will replace the string $ret into the string to be
exec('$array = '.$ret.';');
next time paste the actual var_dump output, its easier. :-)
