Sorry about the variable names... I can print the variable inside the
function until it goes through ereg_replace. Then it's gone. The code works
fine if I replace the line '$song = $id3info["TIT2"]["data"];' with '$song =
"some text string";' Since it's getting the variables value from an included
file's functions that return and assoc. array... it's a bit confusing. I
everything is fine up till the built-in function (inside my function) is
called. Weird is right...


function RemoveSpaces($shittoreplace)
    // Removes spaces and other characters that could cause problems.
    $shittoreplace = ereg_replace(" ", "_", "$shittoreplace");
    return $shittoreplace;

$id3info = (getID3("music.mp3"));
$song = $id3info["TIT2"]["data"];
$newsong = RemoveSpaces("$song");

echo "$newsong";
