Using Explode

Hi all,

I simply want to use explode to display all the e-mail addresses from a variable that is a list of comma seperated addresses. There is no limit to the number of addresses in the list.

I have:

        $sharesplit = $casemyrow["bb_cases_shares"];
        print_r(explode(',', $sharesplit, 30));
But this shows:

"Array ( [0] => [1] => )" on the page.. I guess I need to use
something like foreach but not sure how. I need it to display the list as (not each is on a new line):

hi baggs1981,

You can either add the html pre tags, eg:

       $sharesplit = $casemyrow["bb_cases_shares"];
       echo '<pre>';
       print_r(explode(',', $sharesplit));
       echo '</pre>';

or assign the array to a variable and loop through it like so:

        $sharesplit = $casemyrow["bb_cases_shares"];
       $myarray = explode(',', $sharesplit);
       foreach($myarray as $value) {
        echo "$value<br>\n";
