You shouldn't be asking people to write your code for you, it appears you're doing this for school or some other project.

However, to direct you in the right direction, have a look at the PHP 'explode()' function.

http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.explode.php

There are some examples on that page that should show you what you need to do.
