Hi, all -- Can I compile a regexp as I can in perl?
We have various possible values that we want to strip out of a string and we store them in an array so that users can update with their own. To wit: $noadobe = array ( "File written by Adobe Photoshop", "LEAD Technologies Inc." , "more pesky text" , ) ; We want to make it easy on the users, so we're not going to figure any regular expressions belong in there; I'll just use a greedy .* to suck up everything that starts with any of these matches. In my code I can certainly $noadoberegexp = "(" . join("|",$noadobe) . ").*" ; and then $cleanstring = eregi_replace("$noadoberegexp","",$stripstring) ; but 1) I haven't tested this code yet :-) and 2) I wonder if I'll run into long runtimes when we get lots of strings to match.
