explode function

Hi everyone,
I got some help on my previous question about implode and explode. I've successfully created implode function and working now, but what I need is a working version of implode..
here is my code..

<?  

$fields = array($ver, $datt, $updated, $linkk);

$fldstring = implode('|', $fields);
$filename = "somefile.txt";
$handle = fopen ($filename, "wb");
fwrite($handle, $fldstring);

 ?>

until here it is working fine... I need help on this section....


<?
$filename = "somefile.txt";
$handle = fopen ($filename, "rb");
$contents = fread ($handle, filesize ($filename));
fclose ($handle);

$fields = explode('|',$contents);
$ver = $fields[0];
$datt = $fields[1];
$updates = $fields[2];
$link = $fields[3];
?>

I want to display the returned result. Any suggestions ?

The parse error was I forgot to put semicolon on line
$contents = file_get_contents("somefile.txt")

it should be
$contents = file_get_contents("somefile.txt");

did you try to print the variable values?

print_r($fields);

or

print "$ver - $datt - $updates - $link";

This should work...

<?
$contents = file_get_contents("somefile.txt")

$fields = explode('|',$contents);
$ver = $fields[0];
$datt = $fields[1];
$updates = $fields[2];
$link = $fields[3];
?>

you can just say,

list($ver, $datt, $updates, $link) = explode("|", $contents);

I've copy pasted your code as

<?
$contents = file_get_contents("somefile.txt")

$fields = explode('|',$contents);
$ver = $fields[0];
$datt = $fields[1];
$updates = $fields[2];
$link = $fields[3];
?>
but it is giving me an Parse error on
$fields = explode('|',$contents);

i seriously do not know anything but I need to get this thing run :)
Thanks for the help

<?
if(!function_exists('file_get_contents') ) {

function file_get_contents($filename, $use_include_path=0) {
/* reads out the complete contents of $filename */
$handle = fopen ($filename, "r",$use_include_path);
$contents = fread ($handle, filesize ($filename));
fclose ($handle);
return $contents;
}

}


$contents = file_get_contents("somefile.txt");

$fields = explode('|',$contents);
$ver = $fields[0];
$datt = $fields[1];
$updates = $fields[2];
$link = $fields[3];

list($ver, $datt, $updates, $link) = explode("|", $contents);
}
?>
now it doesn't give me error but it doesn't display the results :(
