Parse Out Url Querystring Into an Array

This function will extract the querystring portion of any url and parse out the key/value pairs into an array with querystring key as key of the array.

	* Parse out url query string into an associative array
	* $qry can be any valid url or just the query string portion.
        * Will return false if no valid querystring found
	* @param $qry String
	* @return Array
	function queryToArray($qry)
		$result = array();
		//string must contain at least one = and cannot be in first position
		if(strpos($qry,'=')) {
		 if(strpos($qry,'?')!==false) {
		   $q = parse_url($qry);
		   $qry = $q['query'];
		}else {
			return false;

		foreach (explode('&', $qry) as $couple) {
			list ($key, $val) = explode('=', $couple);
			$result[$key] = $val;
		return empty($result) ? false : $result;


If you pass in something like ‘′. This function will output this array.

      [param1] => val1
      [param2] => val2

You can also just pass in the querystring ‘param1=val1&param2=val2′ and will output the same thing.
