A PHP library that parses columnar data from a string, e.g. from CLI output.

Requirements

This library requires PHP 5.4, or newer.

Installation

This package uses composer so you can just add dominionenterprises/column-parser as a dependency to your composer.json file.

Formats Supported

This library parses input that has to conform to a supported format.

Multispaced Headers

This parses a string where there are at least two spaces between the columns. The first line in the string is the headers. Each header is expected to be separated by at least two spaces. A single space is treated as interior space of the header (i.e. multiple-word headers).

Example

For example, given the following $contents:

Name     Age  City of Birth
James    17   San Francisco, CA
Mary     18   Washington, D.C.
William  22   Dallas, TX

and the following code:

$parser = new MultispacedHeadersParser($contents);
$data = $parser->getRows();

would result in $data containing:

array(
    array(
        'Name' => 'James',
        'Age' => '17',
        'City of Birth' => 'San Francisco, CA',
    ),
    array(
        'Name' => 'Mary',
        'Age' => '18',
        'City of Birth' => 'Washington, D.C.',
    ),
    array(
        'Name' => 'William',
        'Age' => '22',
        'City of Birth' => 'Dallas, TX',
    ),
);
