chunk_split()

We can break each string after fixed interval and add string to each breaks. If interval or adding string is not given then a line break is added at the end of the string.

chunk_split(string, interval, string)

String is the main string which is to be broken, interval is the fixed interval after which string is to broken at each instance. 3rd parameter is the replacement string which is to be added after each split. Let us try some examples.

$str="This is a string and this is line end";
echo chunk_split($str);

The output is same

This is a string and this is line end

However in above line one line break is added at the end, to see the line break you can use the nl2br function like this.

echo nl2br(chunk_split($str))

You can see one line break is added at the end. Let us try another example

$str="This is a string and this is line end";
echo chunk_split($str,5,'*');

Output is here

This *is a *strin*g and* this* is l*ine e*nd*

After five chars inculding space string is broken and one * is added.
