$x = "\[";
then $x will contain "[". If you then do a regex with preg_match("/$x/",
..." eg. then it get's evaluated as preg_match("/[/", ...
If you want the [ to be escaped in the regex you have to "double-escape" it:
$x = "\ \["; (sorry, the two \ should be together without a space but my
stupid mail-app converts the string thinking it's an network address)
so $x will contain "\[" as you want ( the first backslash escapes the
