Hullo there.
I was wondering if anyone would know how to make a function that takes a string (provided in the parameters) and treats every \n as the end and start of a <p> element (excluding the first occurrence). In other words:

$string = "I am about to be\nprocessed."

would become:

$string = "<p>I am about to be</p><p>processed.</p>"

Thanks for your help, experts

blizzdek,

I would first try using replace.  You may need to strip the opening paragraph tag from the end of the string though and add a starting paragraph tag.

$string = str_replace("\n","</p><p>", $fullstring);

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
