    ... I did not understand what the pipeline does ...

    The  | (pipe) character merely serves as a visual demarcation in the code example to allow the result of the operations to be better seen. Same thing as
        $selected = $1 . " | " . $2 . " | " . $3 . " | " . $4. " | " . $5;
    here.

    It is a simple example of how you could use split to manage a line of text like you supplied. It will not work out of the box. You will in fact have to learn what the code does and customize it to your needs ... or even refactor it in a way that suits you better
      yes i am trying to play with it now. thanks for the help. will get back to you if i have any questions.
