Will the string always have the exact same number of characters? In which case taking substrings is probably best.
If not (as is likely) then can you describe more what each part is.
e.g First part will be a number with 2 decimal places followed by a space followed by a date followed by a space e.t.c

hi...
its according to ur need in which way ur splitting ur string ....

if ur spltting based on number of characters like 4 character string or 5 character string then use str_split() function....

if ur splitting it with some special case like space or : or , or- or_ etc.... the use
explode() function.....

but this both function work good when its used with comman separators or comman size if both of them varry's then u will not get the desired result....
