PHP str_getcsv

PHP original manual for str_getcsv [ show | php.net ]


(PHP 5 >= 5.3.0, PHP 7)

str_getcsv Parse a CSV string into an array


array str_getcsv ( string $input [, string $delimiter = "," [, string $enclosure = '"' [, string $escape = "\\" ]]] )

Parses a string input for fields in CSV format and returns an array containing the fields read.



The string to parse.


Set the field delimiter (one character only).


Set the field enclosure character (one character only).


Set the escape character (one character only). Defaults as a backslash (\)

Note: Usually an enclosure character is escpaped inside a field by doubling it; however, the escape character can be used as an alternative. So for the default parameter values "" and \" have the same meaning. Other than allowing to escape the enclosure character the escape character has no special meaning; it isn't even meant to escape itself.

Return Values

Returns an indexed array containing the fields read.
