This one’s a classic case of “easy when you know how.” How many times have you grabbed a comma-separated string, exploded it into an array, and assigned each item in the array to its own variable?
If it’s a small array, it may not be too much of a problem. But it quickly gets tiring to type out all those array assignments if you have a lot of them to do.
Fear not, there’s a better way…
The Slow Way
The Nice Way
See the difference? Much better!
