any regex gurus?
i'm trying to match words put into a <textarea>
that are in the form of a\np\np\l\e
or any combination of new lines in between, before
$answer = "hello\na\np\np\nl\ne\n"; /*from textarea in form*/
$word = "apple";
$word = preg_replace("/(.)/","(.?|\s+|\n+|)$1(.?|\s+|\n+|)",$word);
$word = "red apple";
$answer = "r\ne\nd\n\na\np\np\nl\e";
it doesn't match.
thanks in advance,
