array spliti (string pattern, string string [, int limit])
The spliti() function operates exactly in the same manner as its sibling split(), except that it is not case sensitive. Case-sensitive characters are an issue only when the pattern is alphabetical. For all other characters, spliti() operates exactly as split() does.
Following is the piece of code, copy and paste this code into a file and verify the result.
<?php $ip = "123.456.789.000"; // some IP address $iparr = spliti ("\.", $ip, 3); print "$iparr <br />"; print "$iparr <br />" ; print "$iparr <br />" ; print "$iparr <br />" ; ?>
This will produce only three strings as we have limited number of strings to be produced.
