i'd luv to know wat happens if a value is to be taken from within a certain tag in a page when there are more than one of the tags in the page. for example, if i'd luv to tkae all data from within EVERY bold tags in a page, will this work:
you have to tell the regex to be ungreedy
$file = http://example.com/;
$open = fopen($file,"r");
$read = fread($open, filesize($file));
$search = eregi("<b>(.*)</b>", $read, $value);
also: "Note: preg_match(), which uses a Perl-compatible regular expression syntax, is often a faster alternative to ereg()."
preg_match( "/<b>(.*)</b>/Ui", $read, $value );
and by the way, i'd also luv to know more about Regular Expressions. I'd be very happy if someone can refer me to a nice tutor page. thanx.
