Range/interval parser (Microsoft Word printing-like)


Recommended Posts

This function parser printing-like intervals (like "1,2,3-5") and returns an array with every page number as item.

Ex.: "1,2,3-5" will return an array which 0th element is "5" (page count) and the items are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The array is given in the order the $interval parameter is set, and reverse intervals are also supported (e.g.: "8,4,7-5" will return items 8, 4, 7, 6, 5 and 0th element is 5).

If it fails, it will return False and set error to non-zero (invalid string).
