unwanted spaces in array

here is my code...

$cuswords = file( "cuswords.txt");
$array_size = sizeof($cuswords);
 
 
 for($i=0; $i<$array_size; $i++) {
     $cuswords[$i] = str_replace("\n","",$cuswords[$i]);
 }
 
 /*testing array*/
for($i=0;$i<$array_size;$i++){
 echo $cuswords[$i];}

i want to test this array against strings.... but when i use the test print i see that the values are printed "blah blah blah" while they should be stored as BlahBlahBlah with no spaces...
please help....

The text file is in the form of

blah
blah
blah
blah
blah

if I understand correctly with the $value = file() command each new line is read as a new value into the array

thanx everyone....

I think this has to do with your string replace arguments.
Assuming the text in your txt file is as follows:
"Blah bla bla"
(so on one line separated by spaces)...

Instead of "\n" you should then replace just " " with "".

By the way, if the text in your textfile is arranged in an other way, please post it so we can do some tests ourselves.

what about:
$cuswords[$i] = str_replace('\n','',$cuswords[$i]);


?
coz the length of $cuswords[$i]is only 1

$cuswords[$i] = str_replace('\n','',$cuswords[$i]);
would be wrong. [ you guess why : hint ' != " ]
What I think is either :
1. you have some DOS text file, so the line delimiter is \r\n
you replace only the \n. Then when outputed in HTML(I guess)
you see the \r as a space. Try replacing "\r\n"
2 . or , the echo also sends a \n.

But, I don't see the meaning. What are you trying to compare?
the whole text in the file? Then just do
<?php
$all = file ('mytextfile.txt');
$all = implode ("",$all);
$all = str_replace ("\n","",$all);
Header("Content-Type: text/plain");
echo "-->$all<--" ; //to see if it is the expected string;
?>
