What about explode()?

<?php
$Country = "Country: UNITED STATES (US)";
$Country = explode(":", $Country);
echo $Country[0]; // This will echo "Country"
echo $Country[1]; // This will echo "UNITED STATES (US)"
?>

Copy the code for the rest of your values and you are set.

your explode code results in:

UNITED STATES (US) City: Scottsdale, AZ Latitude: 33.686 Longitude: -111.87 -> $result


$Country = $result;
$Country = explode(":", $Country);
echo $Country[1]; // This will echo "UNITED STATES (US)"


UNITED STATES (US) City

Both works with carriage return or single line

<?php
$data="Country: UNITED STATES (US)
City: Somewhere, AK
Latitude: 12.7696
Longitude: -123.4588
";

//$data="Country: UNITED STATES (US) City: Somewhere, AK  Latitude: 12.7696 Longitude: -123.4588";

if (preg_match('/Country:(?P<country>.*)(\\r\\n*)?(?=City)City:(?P<city>.*)(\\r\\n*)?(?=Latitude)Latitude:(?P<latitude>.*)(\\r\\n*)?(?=Longitude)Longitude:(?P<longitude>.*)/i', $data, $regs)) {
      $country = trim($regs['country']);
      $city=trim($regs['city']);
      $latitude=trim($regs['latitude']);
      $longitude=trim($regs['longitude']);
      }
echo "$country $city $latitude $longitude";
?>
