PHP split or explode ?


Recently I've encountered a problem with the PHP split() function when the string to split in an array was really big. I did not find a solution, so I divided the string in several parts, really awful !

I read that the split() and explode() functions were the same ones so I tried to use explode() instead and surprise surprise now it works fine. I can't explain.

What's the problem with the split() function ?  Aren't the code the same one for both functions ??  Is it recommended to avoid to use the split() function and other PHP functions ?

(more options below)
