You might split the string by spaces. You don't mention which scripting language you're using, but here's an example in javascript http://www.quirksmode.org/js/strings.html#split

Then I move the thread to the server-side scripting forum.

Yes, with PHP you might use the explode() function for that. Look it up at the excellent http://www.php.net/manual/en/index.php for details.

You mean if you want to put the array of exploded words back into a sentence again? Then you can use implode().

No, for that you can just echo the content of the first TEXTAREA into the second. See http://www.php.net/manual/en/tutorial.forms.php

The implode() function is meant to make a string from array elements. For example, the value of the variable $a below is the string "i like apple":

CODE
$a="i like apple";

Now I explode() it (using a space as delimiter), and store the resulting array as the value of variable $b:

CODE
$b=explode(' ', $a);

Each array element in $b is now a separate string. To examine them you might use:

CODE
echo $b[0]; // "i"
echo $b[1]; // "like"
echo $b[2]; // "apple"

or more conveniently use print_r():

CODE
echo '<pre>';
print_r($b);
echo '</pre>';

If you want to join the array elements back into the original string again, you can use implode() with a space as "glue":

CODE
$c=implode(' ', $b);

and the result should yet again be "i like apple":

CODE
echo $c;

Greetings all...
i have the problem again with the textarea input..
actually i use this code to read one by one word..which means read white space between the input....

QUOTE
explode(' ',$_POST['input']);


so the input will turn into array...they read one word input as one array...
but the problem is..why the the warning appear like this if im just key in only one word?

QUOTE
Notice: Undefined offset: 2 in C:\xampp\htdocs\Try_1\translate.php on line 9
Notice: Undefined variable: word2 in C:\xampp\htdocs\Try_1\translate.php on line 148


and for the output it become like this.....
QUOTE
<b>Notice</b>: Undefined variable: translate3 in <b>C:\xampp\htdocs\Try_1\translate_home.php</b> on line <b>31</b><br />


right now im using conditionals if..elseif to read the array...
but if im change to use while looping the textarea take several time to appear..and the error will appear like this...

QUOTE
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\Try_1\translate.php on line 19


so any here can explain to me why it this happen??
it is any idea how to resolve this situation??
or perhaps i just need to make conditionals if...elseif for the other array??
or set the variable to read the other array??

        $words      = explode(' ',$_POST['input']);

        $result = mysql_query($sql, $conn) or die(mysql_error());
              
                 if (mysql_num_rows($result) >0)
                    {
                        while ($newArray = mysql_fetch_array($result))

        $sql1 = "SELECT words2 FROM trabslate WHERE key2 = '$words'";
        
        $result1 = mysql_query($sql1, $conn) or die(mysql_error());
              
                 if (mysql_num_rows($result1) >0)
                    {
                        while ($newArray = mysql_fetch_array($result1))
                            {
                            
                                $translate  = $newArray['words2'];
                                //$words1 =implode(' ', $words);
                             }
                    }
                else {
                        $translate = $a;
                        
                }
        
        }elseif ($words == " ") {
                 $message1 = " ";
                 $translate = $message1;   }

mysql_close($conn);
        include('translate_home.php');


}
ob_end_flush();
?>

That code example contains no PHP variables $word2 or $translate3. There might be other SQL-related errors as well.

Perhaps you could use preg_split() instead of explode(). The former lets you split by a regular expression, which means you can check for any whitespace character:

CODE
$words = preg_split("/[\s]+/", $_POST['textarea']);

(where \s matches any whitespace character, including tabs and different operatings systems' types of line breaks, and + means one or more of them).

You mean you want to join the array items back into a string? Then you might use

CODE
$string=implode("\n", $words);

(where "\n" is a newline character).

It gets more complicated if the input contains different kinds of whitespace, such as both blank spaces and newlines:

CODE
<textarea>i like
apples</textarea>

and you want to recreate the different kinds of whitespace in the output. unsure.gif
