Hey.. yeah I might..
I don't know if I am right or just blabbering crap but try to add these param's to your regex statement.. preg_split("/\0/i", $buffer); note the i.. It should let it read past newlines.. although you're prob is with null (\0) chars.. as I said.. Don't know if I am on the right track.. but it's worth a go eh?? good luck.. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dave MacRae" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Monday, April 29, 2002 8:26 PM Subject: [PHP] Null character as field seperator in a string. > For historic reasons, I have a file that contains a number of records in > which the fields are seperated by the NULL character, i.e, > > field1\0field2\0field3\0field4 > > I need to parse out the fields from this string. > > The string is read into the program using > > $buffer = fgets(...). > > This would be no problem in Perl or C but I cannot get this to work in PHP. > > I have tried using > > preg_split("/\0/", $buffer); > > But this fails.
