 <?php
function string_range($str1) 
{
  preg_match_all("/([0-9]{1,2})-?([0-9]{0,2}) ?,?;?/", $str1, $a);
  $x = array ();
  foreach ($a[1] as $k => $v) 
  {
    $x  = array_merge ($x, range ($v, (empty($a[2][$k])?$v:$a[2][$k])));
  }
  return ($x);
}
$test_string = '1-2 18-20 9-14';
print_r(string_range($test_string));
?> 

Output

Array ( [0] => 1 [1] => 2 [2] => 18 [3] => 19 [4] => 20 [5] => 9 [6] => 8 [7] => 7 [8] => 6 [9] => 5 [10] => 4 )

<?php
$number = range(0,50,10);
print_r ($number);
?>

Output

Array ( [0] => 0 [1] => 10 [2] => 20 [3] => 30 [4] => 40 [5] => 50 )
