There are two text files.

The first contains:
11111111
22222222
33333333
44444444

The second contains:
AAAAAAAA
BBBBBBBB
CCCCCCCC
DDDDDDDD

What I want:
11111111AAAAAAAA
22222222BBBBBBBB
33333333CCCCCCCC
44444444DDDDDDDD

But I get:
11111111
AAAAAAAA
22222222
BBBBBBBB
33333333
CCCCCCCC
44444444
DDDDDDDD


What I have tried:

The code is the following:
PHP
<?php
$lines = file('IVS_headings.txt');
$lines2 = file('IVS_links.txt');

foreach ($lines as $key => $val) {
    $lines[$key] = $val.$lines2[$key];
}

file_put_contents('to_write_file.txt', $lines);
?>

Because each line that you read is terminated by a newline character. So you need to strip that final character from each string in $lines, before you add the second string to it.

1 solution

Use PHP: rtrim - Manual[^] :
PHP
foreach ($lines as $key => $val) {
  $temp = rtrim($val);
  $lines[$key] = $temp.$lines2[$key];
}
