Setting up a script to change coordinates
Hello all, I am a beginner at scripting but need this done for a personal project.
My aim is to make a website, with two input boxes, users will then enter two co-ordinates: "571837.62N" AND "0021601.95W"
Then the website will convert the two inputed coordinates to the following output format "N057.18.37.620 W002.16.01.950".
Can anyone provide me with a code for this?
Many thanks in advanced.
Like so many requests, this is not a code forum where answers to probels are given, you need to provide the code that you have a problem with resolving and people will then help.
Please remember to wrap any code you have in forum tags:-
[CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]
If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
Most robust solution is probably to just have separate input fields for degrees, minutes, seconds, and direction, and not have to do any string parsing (which would leave at the mercy of the user correctly inputting any specific format. If this is some classroom assignment where you have to do it this way, then on the PHP side of things, substr() is probably the main thing you need to look at.
