explode() - string

Returns an array of strings, each of which is a substring of
   string formed by splitting it on
   boundaries formed by the string delimiter.
Parameters :
  • delimiter - The boundary string.
  • string - The input string.
  • limit - If limit is set and positive, the returned array will contain a maximum of limit elements with the last element containing the rest of string.
