Create an array from java code output in PHP

I have a java applet that returns a bunch of records in a string i.e.
$results[0][0]
$results[0][1]
$results[1][0]
$results[1][1]

I am lost, I can display this if I hard code echo $results[0][1] and so on, but how can I create an array that I could then do while loop with like I would with mysql. If there is a better way than that then please advise. I thought about looping through the first numeric value, but do not know how to check for the last number.

I would have the java output a single String, each array element to be seperated by commas. Then with PHP use theexplode method. To split the String back into an array.

That would be great, but I cannot change the java.

found this, see if it helps:

<?php
                //  Can implode an array of any dimension
        //  Uses a few basic rules for implosion:
        //        1. Replace all instances of delimeters in strings by '/' followed by delimeter
        //        2. 2 Delimeters in between keys
        //        3. 3 Delimeters in between key and value
        //        4. 4 Delimeters in between key-value pairs
        function implodeMDA($array, $delimeter, $keyssofar = '') {
            $output = '';
            foreach($array as $key => $value) {
                if (!is_array($value)) {
                    $value = str_replace($delimeter, '/'.$delimeter, $value);
                    $key = str_replace($delimeter, '/'.$delimeter, $key);
                    if ($keyssofar != '') $key = $key.$delimeter.$delimeter;
                    $pair = $key.$keyssofar.$delimeter.$delimeter.$delimeter.$value;
                    if ($output != '') $output .= $delimeter.$delimeter.$delimeter.$delimeter;
                    $output .= $pair;
                }
                else {
                    if ($output != '') $output .= $delimeter.$delimeter.$delimeter.$delimeter;
                    if ($keyssofar != '') $key = $key.$delimeter.$delimeter;
                    $output .= $this->implodeMDA($value, $delimeter, $key.$keyssofar);
                }
            }
            return $output;
        }
