Echo ‘N’ Number Of Words

Description: To get the first 250 words offset you can use php.net/stripos in a loop like this.

<?PHP
 
$the_string = "a very long string of words";
 
$space_offset = 0;
$space_num = 0;
 
WHILE($space_num <= 250){
$space_offset  = stripos($the_string, ' ',$space_offset + 1);
$space_num++;
}
 
?>
 
// after the loop completes, $space_offset will have the offset
// of the space just before the 250th word.
