Good day, The first argument should just be a normal regular expression, not a replacement regular expression.
I'm not at my server right now, but I would guess that it'll work once you get rid of the last / in the first expression. ============================ Darren Gamble Planner, Regional Services Shaw Cablesystems GP 630 - 3rd Avenue SW Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2P 4L4 (403) 781-4948 -----Original Message----- From: John Ericson [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Wednesday, February 20, 2002 1:25 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: [PHP] preg_replace("/^\//".. doesnt work? Im having a weird regexp problem in PHP that I think is correct but it doesnt appear to work. The code is this: $a = "/test/"; preg_replace("/^\//", "", $a); echo $a; I want preg_replace to replace the first '/' in $a with '' so that the echo function echoes "test/", but instead it echoes "/test/" as if preg_replace didnt worked? What am I doing wrong?
