Better parse_str in php

1 Years ago(Updated in 1 Years ago) PHP(Functions) 0

parse_str() is fine for simple stuff but it's not the same as PHP's built way of creating the $_GET magic variable. Why?!? I have no idea. I have developed my own version that I believe matches PHP's parsing exactly (let me know if you can find any examples that show otherwise). Kendall Hopkins stackoverflow user

            $value = "";

            $key = urldecode( substr( $string_piece, 0, $equal_offset ) );
            $value = urldecode( substr( $string_piece, $equal_offset + 1 ) );
