    This function breaks a piece of text into characters and shows them on a newline. I could not for the love of me get the \n to work so I added <br /> instead.


    PHP:
    <?php
    function textToCharacters($string)
    {
        
    $sLen strlen($string); // length in numbers of the text
        
    $i 0// iteration start point
        
    $characters "";
        
        for(
    $i 0$i $sLen$i++) // iterate from 0 to length of the string
        
    {

            
    $characters .= $string[$i]. "<br />"// store each character as a space seperated array.

        
    }

        return 
    $characters// return the list of the characters

    }

    echo 
    textToCharacters("pein87");


    ?>

    Well... i don't think is a text to chars function. More like a text to text function because the output is after all another string. :)

    it break the original string into characters and shows them on a newline. Of course you dont need a function to get the text thats saved as a variable into characters you could of course just use $text[0].
