Greetings everyone,

I'm trying to do some regexp magic and just can't seem to
get it done with PHP.

Basically I want to evaluate a word and if the last character
of the word is an 's', to knock it off, unless there are 
two consecutives at the end of the word.

So 'boys' would become 'boy' 
and 'cars' would become 'car'

However, I don't want 
'happiness' to become 'happines', so I need to stop
it where there are two consecutive 'ss' on the end of the word.

$out=eregi_replace("[s]$",'',$in); will knock off the last one.

I thought about:


but that won't work....

any ideas?
