This library parses input that has to conform to a supported format.
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
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
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', ), );
