Aaron, It's not a tutorial, but if you look at the stripos() function on PHP.NET there are some good examples of expressions that check for multiple characters (needles) in a given string (haystack) both in the description of the function and the user contributed notes at the bottom. Those might be enough to get you going in the right direction. You could also check the strpos() function for more examples.
Sorry I can't be of more help, but our "big bompany" Internet connection is down right now. I get more reliability from my $45 Road Runner connection. > -----Original Message----- > From: Aaron Wolski [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: Friday, August 01, 2003 11:34 AM > To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: [PHP-DB] Regular Expressions?
