Old Summary: $ can't be escaped when using ereg function
Old Status: Open
Status: Bogus

This is known and expected behavior.  Please review the regex docs more carefully - 
also search the php-general mailing list archives.

The quick fix is to place 3 backslashes in front of the $.

Please see the codes below:

$arrfile = '<?include("$DOCUMENT_ROOT/TEMPLATES/TOP-BANNER.HTM");?>';

        print "good\n";
        print "bad\n";


The result will return "bad" because the eregi can't find the expression in the 
$arrfile. If I removed the $, it will return "good". I guess "$" can't be escaped 
inside the eregi function. Please help.
