$name = "str";
$char_array = split(????,$name) ...
Actually the split() function is used to split a string expression into fields based on the delimiter specified by a PATTERN.
#it will remove all the ':' from the string and save the rest of the values in an array '@fields'.
i need "tr" from "str" removing first char ...
You don't have to use a split() function for that.
just use substr() for getting that.
#it returns 'tr'.
#substr('string',starting from offset,length).
#you can also use substr($name,1);
#that will remove first character from the string and return you rest of the characters.
