str_split

Convert a string to an array (PHP 5)
array str_split ( string string [, int split_length] )

Converts a string to an array.

Parameters

string

The input string.

split_length

Maximum length of the chunk.

Return Values

If the optional split_length parameter is specified, the returned array will be broken down into chunks with each being split_length in length, otherwise each chunk will be one character in length.

FALSE is returned if split_length is less than 1. If the split_length length exceeds the length of string, the entire string is returned as the first (and only) array element.
