I have the following string:

a:22:{i:0;s:25:"sometext";i:1;s:13:"sometext";i:2;s:24:"sometext";i:3;s:25:"sometext";i:4;s:14:"sometext";i:5;s:11:"sometext";i:6;s:8:"sometext";i:7;s:11:"sometext";i:8;s:19:"sometext";i:9;s:24:"sometext";i:10;s:18:"sometext";i:11;s:14:"sometext";i:12;s:15:"sometext";i:13;s:15:"sometext";i:14;s:10:"sometext";i:15;s:19:"sometext";i:16;s:16:"sometext";i:17;s:17:"sometext";i:18;s:31:"sometext";i:19;s:52:"sometext";i:20;s:39:"sometext";i:21;s:25:"sometext";}

the format is: i:id;s:# of characters:"text";

I would like to create a list of links which contains links for items in the above string, each link should take the "id" and "text" parts and format them as follows:
<a href="file.php?param=id">sometext</a>

I think we should use split function using ragular expersion and put them in an array or something, but I don't know how to do it.  Any help!

Hi,

You probably can use:

$array = unserialize($string);

then use
foreach($array as $key => $value) {
  echo '<a href="file.php?param='.intval($key).'">'.htmlspecialchars($value).'</a>';
}
