Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

Thread: [PHP] Word Wrap Source Code

  1. #1

    [PHP] Word Wrap Source Code

    Is there a way to word wrap source code in PHP? I'm withdrawing information from a database and it looks fine on the page, but I'm just the kind of person that likes to keep my source code neat. So it's bothering me that it displays the entire post as one line.

    Sorry if that was a bad explanation of my problem, but here, this should help:

    I want the line "This is an entry..." to look more like the commented out text. I don't want it all as one long line, but rather a series of shorter lines. Is there a function to do this or should I attmept to write my own?

    Thanks

    wrap 'string' to another line if it exceeds given 'width'
    PHP Code:
    echo wordwrap ($string$width"\n");

    Sweet!
    Thanks

    Will $width break up a word in the middle?
    IE if the width is 2 and I have "blah"
    Willl it make it "bla\nh"?

    Edit: No, it doesn't. I love PHP

    yep

    to avoid that, use
    PHP Code:
    echo wordwrap ($string$width"\n"1);
