I was trying to split the string with the splitter "\", but it gives me this error message: 
"Warning: REG_EESCAPE:wtrailing backslash (\) in E:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test\split.php on line 8"


$mytest  =  "STAFF\Tester";
$arr = split ("\\", $mytest);  //--> ERROR!

Please help!

Your regex is broken, it should be:

$arr = split ("\\\\", $mytest);
