Amazing the little tricks you can pick up from combing the PHP manual, especially in the comments.

I particularly like this one-liner, which allows you to filter out blanks or empty elements from an array.

    This also works.

    $array_with_empty = array(\"one\",\"\",\"three\",\"\",\"five\");

    $cleaned_array = array_diff( $array_with_empty , array(NULL) );
