In Perl I used "/\S/" to check for blank lines read from a file. Now I'm learning PHP. How do I know what is a 'standard' regexp that ereg() can handle and how do I know what is Perl-specific syntax so that I must use preg_grep() instead?
For example, can I use ereg("\S",$buffer) to check for a blank or must I use preg_grep()or that. What specific things require preg_grep() to be used instead of ereg()? Thanks. -- John A.
