Simple html dom parser table to array

I'm trying to parse the arrivals table from here [1] and put in into an array to be able to format it and put it into a table.

I did some research here and there, I've got some code from other questions, but I can't make the array and table look as I'd like.

Anyone can help me out?

<?php
require('simple_html_dom.php');
$html = file_get_html('http://flightplan.romatsa.ro/init/fpl/flightslr/LRCL/');
$table = $html->find('table', 3);
foreach($table->find('tr') as $row) {
// initialize array to store the cell data from each row
$rowData = array();
foreach($row->find('td') as $cell) {
// push the cell's text to the array
$rowData[] = $cell->innertext;
}
echo "<table>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[0]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[1]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[2]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[3]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[4]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[5]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[6]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[7]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "<td>";
echo $rowData[8]. " ";
echo "</td>";
echo "</table>";
}
?>

Answer

Maybe try putting each row into an array and then each cell into another array. Hopefully, that will do what you want.

require('simple_html_dom.php');
$html = file_get_html('http://flightplan.romatsa.ro/init/fpl/flightslr/LRCL/');

$table = $html->find('table', 3);
$rowData = array();

foreach($table->find('tr') as $row) {
    // initialize array to store the cell data from each row
    $flight = array();
    foreach($row->find('td') as $cell) {
        // push the cell's text to the array
        $flight[] = $cell->plaintext;
    }
    $rowData[] = $flight;
}

echo '<table>';
foreach ($rowData as $row => $tr) {
    echo '<tr>'; 
    foreach ($tr as $td)
        echo '<td>' . $td .'</td>';
    echo '</tr>';
}
echo '</table>';

Note: this solution requires the simple_html_dom.php library. Get it here!
