troubleshooting Question

Parsing out a string and imploding back together to display original and parsed string.

I have something like:

$ads_raw='Sample link <a href="sample.html">sample 1</a>.
Sample link <a href="sample.html">sample 2</a>.
Sample link <a href="sample.html">sample 3</a>.';

I've exploded  and counted them (because I needed to count them for another purpose):

$lines = explode("\n", $ads_raw);
$number_lines = count($lines);

Now I need to parse out the url, then implode everything back together with the url below the original line, and add in breaks, so I end up with:

Sample 1 link <a href="sample1.html">sample 1</a>.<br>

Sample 2 link <a href="sample2.html">sample 1</a>.<br>

Sample 3 link <a href="sample3.html">sample 1</a>.<br>

Maybe a 'foreach' statement?  Don't have any idea how to write that.  The ultimate purpose being to easily proof that the correct urls are being used.

Thanks,        Chris   (using php 4.3.3)
