String to Array variable split

tonelm54 asked
Last Modified: 2020-01-09
Ive been struggeling with an issue for a while of turning a string into an array, but a multi dimentinal array. So for example:-

$sett["Settings.General.View.Scheme"] = 12;
$sett["Settings.General.IDE.Color"] = 15;
$sett["Settings.General"] = "Allowed";
to turn into

$sett["Settings"].["General"].["View"].["Scheme"] = 12;
$sett["Settings"].["General"].["IDE"].["Color"] = 15;
$sett["Settings"].["General"] = "Allowed";

Ive played around trying to get it to work with functions and for loops but cant get it working. Any ideas or pointers?
