Splitting up a string in PHP with every blank space

I have an input where a user may type in multiple words, and they are told to separate it with a space. So input may look like this:

foo


or like this:

foo bar php js


How can I check for spaces, and if there are spaces, split the words, then put it all into an array? I'll loop through that array in my program. I'm just new to string handling like this.

Answer

See explode

// Example 1
$pizza  = "piece1 piece2 piece3 piece4 piece5 piece6";
$pieces = explode(" ", $pizza);
echo $pieces[0]; // piece1
echo $pieces[1]; // piece2
