$string = "aaa:bbb:ccc:ddd";
list($a,$b,$c,$d) = sscanf($string,"%s:%s:%s:%s");
print "$a,$b,$c,$d\n";

$string will be contained in $a instead of being splitted in $a,$b,$c,$d.

%s Matches a sequence of non-white-space characters. This is taken straight from the sscanf manual page. Although PHP has its own implemention, at this point they do match.

If you have such simple things you might want to use explode(), split() and friends.

Not a bug, bogusified.
