How To Return Just First-line From A Multi-line String Of Text?

Jul 9, 2007

I've been looking through the manual for string commands, and I haven't had success in determining the proper call for this, if there is one:

Let's say I have a text string with hard-carriage returns in it:

"The lazy brown fox ran down the road
to the store and bought some eggs
to bake a cake and serve dinner
for all his friends."

So if that string value is in "x", how can I tell it to return JUST the first line: "The lazy brown fox ran down the road"

Split Text Into Batches With Line Breaks?

Jan 5, 2010

I have a textarea and all I had to do is split the text into 50 chars and feed the lines to another app. No problem. But I forgot about line breaks. If someone puts linebreak I have to also make that a seperate line. Here's my current code ($content is the original text). I'm sure there is an easy way I just can't get to it.

$div = strlen($content) / 50;
while ($x<$div) {
$text = substr($content,$substr,50);
if (trim($text)!="") {
echo $text . "<br>";

Carriage Returns In Multi - Line Text Field To Csv To Excel

Feb 19, 2009

I've got an html form, processed by php that writes to a csv text file that I would like opened in excel. Problem is that I have a multi-line text field that users are submitting hard returns in that excel looks at as new records. How can I have the php ignore the hard returns within the abstract multi-line text field? I know NOTHING about php for the record! It's the $abstract value that is causing the issue...

PHP Code:
$oral = $_POST['oral'];
$poster = $_POST['poster'];
$either = $_POST['either'];
$name = $_POST['name'];
$affiliation = $_POST['affiliation'];

Transform A String From Multi-Line To Single-Line?

Nov 9, 2009

Is there a PHP string function that transforms a multi-line string into a single-line string?

I'm getting some data back from an API that contains multiple lines. For example:

<p>Some Data</p>
<p>Some more Data</p>
<p>Even More Data</p>

I assign that data to a variable, then echo the variable as part/"cell" of a CSV document.

It's breaking my CSV document. Instead of all content showing in one cell (when viewing in OpenOffice Calc), it shows in multiple cells and rows. It should be contained within one cell.

I would like to transform the string into:

<p>Some Data</p><p>Some more Data</p><p>Even More Data<p>

Multi Line String To Single Line?

Dec 2, 2010

I am using JSON to fetch html from a PHP script - cross domain. Thus I am not using traditional AJAX techniques which only work within the same domain.

Becuase of the use of JSON, which does not allow multi-line strings, I need some way of formatting the string in PHP and returning at as a single line e.g.


PHP Code:

$string="ThisisaMulti-linestring thatspansoverseverallines andneedschangingtoasingleline";


PHP Code:


I cannot leave the original string on a single line because there are many lines of html and my non technical client will edit it regularly.

Multi-Line Ereg_replace?

Sep 15, 2001

Hi everyone,

I am extremely new to PHP and I was wondering if I could ask y'all a question...

I'm trying to use ereg_replace() to replace a block of html code in a page. The problem is that the code is on serveral lines. Basically, it looks like this:

<td align="center"><font size="1" face="Verdana" color="#666666">Text goes here</font></td>

There's one space in front on the first and last line, and two spaces on the second line... I tried using and s to symbolize the newlines and spaces, but it doesn't work... I also tried chr(013) and chr(010) - same thing. Any ideas? Can I just surround the whole thing in quotes and have it multi-lined that way?

Split The Line Only At First Occurrence Of Character ':'?

Aug 13, 2010

This may be a lame question but I am a total novice with regular expressions. I have some text data in the format: Company Name: Name of the company, place. Company Address: Some address, here. Link: [URL] Now, I want to use a regex to split these into an array of name : value pairs. The regular expression I am trying is /(.*):(.*)/ with preg_match_all() and it does work well with the first two lines but on the third line it returns "Link: http:" in one part and "//[URL] in other. So, is there any way to split the line only at the first occurrence of the character ':'?

Split A Line Into Several Array Elements?

Feb 15, 2011

let a user upload a text file, and have the in the upload process grab the file and programatically search for keywords I specify. The script then counts how many times the word is found and outputs the entire line that it was found in into an array.

So the example results returns this when using this code:

$sceneINT = $sf->countKeyWord('INT', $file);

with my class looking like so:
public static function countKeyWord($word, $file){
return NULL;
$contents = file_get_contents($file);


All that will go into 1 row in the database, I don't know how to approach this. How can I take the result and split into what I need and then send it to the database so that ALL items found are stored when the user presses the SAVE button.

Function To Split An Array At Each Blank Line?

Jul 27, 2009

I'm building a script which will open a saved text file, export the contents to an array and then dump the contents in a database. So far I've been able to get the file upload working quite happily and can also open said file.

The trouble I'm having is the contents of the file are variable, they have a fixed structure but the contents will change every time. The structure of the file is that each "section" is seperated by a blank line.

I've used php's file() to get an array ... I'm not sure if there's a way to then split that array up every time it comes across a blank line?

$file = $target_path;
$data = file($file) or die('Could not read file!');

Example output:

[0] => domain.com
[1] => # Files to be checked
[2] => /www/06.php
[3] => /www/08.php


I know that Field 0 and 1 will be constants, they will always be a domain name then that hash line. The lines thereafter could be anywhere between 1 line and 1000 lines.

I've looked at array_chunk() which is close to what I want but it works on a numerical value, what would be good if there was something which would work on a specified value (like a new line, or a comma or something of that sort!).

Mailer Doesn't Like Multi-line Input

I have made a form where the form input has gone into a mysql database, and I am making a page which takes it out again and sends it to the mailer script. This works fine until I try to take the multi-line address out of the db, which makes it all hang and mail not get sent.

Multi-line Terminal Progress Indicator?

In a terminal, if I'm outputting a one-line progress indicator of some sort, in-place, would do the trick:

while (1) { echo "progress indication
"; }

However, I have a progress indicator that really should be multi-line. As only returns to the start of the current line, I want something that can move up a couple of lines. Is there a control character/function that allows me to step back lines in the terminal?

Edit: in case I wasn't completely clear, I wish to have something roughly the opposite of v, the vertical tab, which moves the terminal cursor down a line.

Storing And Retrieving Multi - Line Entries

Apr 5, 2010

I am extracting data from [URL] via their API using PHP. I can store the data in MySQL without an issue when it comes to any field type except multi-line. In Salesforce, the field is like a notes section and entries are stored with line breaks, chr(13), chr(10), etc.. When I insert it into MySQL, it concatenates it into one long string. If I query this field from MySQL I cannot get it to format like it is in Salesforce.

There is a discussion on this on my site (sorry for the external link, but I thought it would explain it better) > [URL] Some friends have said that I should use base64_encode to insert and base64_decode , but I have tried it.

2.The last record in the file may or may not have an ending line break.For example:aaa, bbb, ccc, CRLF, zzz, yyy, xxx.3.There maybe an optional header line appearing as the first line of the file with the same format as normal record lines.This header will contain names corresponding to the fields in the file and should contain the same number of fields as the records in the rest of the file(the presence or absence of the header line should be indicated via the optional "header" parameter of this MIME type).

For example:field_name,field_name,field_name CRLF, aaa,bbb,ccc, CRLF, zzz, yyy, xxx CRLF.4.Within the header and each record, there may be one or more fields, separated by commas.Each line should contain the same number of fields throughout the file.Spaces are considered part of a field and should not be ignored.The last field in the record must not be followed by a comma.For example:aaa,bbb,ccc.

5.Each field may or may not be enclosed in double quotes(however some programs, ch as Microsoft Excel, do not use double quotes at all).If fields are not enclosed with double quotes, then double quotes may not appear inside the fields.For example:"aaa","bbb","ccc" CRLF, zzz, yyy, xxx.6.Fields containing line breaks(CRLF), double quotes, and commas should be enclosed in double-quotes.For example:"aaa","b CRLF, bb","ccc" CRLF, zzz, yyy, xxx.7.If double-quotes are used to enclose fields, then a double-quote appearing inside a field must be escaped by preceding it with another double quote.For example:"aaa" ,"b""bb" ,"ccc".
