pieces

The array of strings to implode.

Return Values

Returns a string containing a string representation of all the array elements in the same order, with the glue string between each element.

<?php

$array 
= array('lastname''email''phone');
$comma_separated implode(","$array);

$comma_separated// lastname,email,phone

// Empty string when using an empty array:
var_dump(implode('hello', array())); // string(0) ""
