str_getcsv — Parse a CSV string into an array
$delimiter= "," [, string
$enclosure= '"' [, string
$escape= "\\" ]]] ) : array
Parses a string input for fields in CSV format and returns an array containing the fields read.
The locale settings are taken into account by this function. If LC_CTYPE is e.g. en_US.UTF-8, strings in one-byte encodings may be read wrongly by this function.
The string to parse.
Set the field delimiter (one character only).
Set the field enclosure character (one character only).
Set the escape character (at most one character). Defaults as a backslash (\) An empty string ("") disables the proprietary escape mechanism.
Note: Usually an
enclosurecharacter is escaped inside a field by doubling it; however, the
escapecharacter can be used as an alternative. So for the default parameter values "" and \" have the same meaning. Other than allowing to escape the
escapecharacter has no special meaning; it isn't even meant to escape itself.
Returns an indexed array containing the fields read.
