I think the only way is to put the whole xml into a string and replace 
the first line

reg_match('^/[^/]*/([^/]*)/',$a, $match)

$match[1] should contain what you need

I'm not an expert on regex but this seems to work:-

ereg("^/[^/]*/([^/]*)/.*$", "/realtor/Remax/Ed/files/", $regs);
  if (isset($regs[1])) {
    print $regs[1];
  }

I've got a situation where I need to pull a string from a variable but I
can't seem to get it figured out. 

I.e.

value of $a = /realtor/Remax/Ed/files/

I need to get the string between the second and third / (slash)

What I need: Remax

---------------------------------------------------------

Just explode the string with / as the delimiter, and then grab the [2] element, for 
instance:

   $dirnames = explode('/', $a);
   echo $dirnames[2];

Cheers!

Assuming that it will always be in this format (/something/what you
want/...), explode() the string by '/' into an array, and get the right
element back.

<?
$a = /realtor/Remax/Ed/files/
$aa = explode('/', $a);
echo $aa[2];
?>

Enjoy

hi,

does anyone know of a php-based combined mailing list and bulletin 
board/forum?
something like a php lovechild of majordomo and yabbse?

any pointers greatly appreciated!

Well Phorum.org can sort of do it but its not very well documented.

It has a script in the scripts dir called phroum mail. Which takes email in 
and posts it to the selected forum and you can then set the forum to email 
all posts to an address....

I have yet to get my head around it but I think this would do the 
trick....sort of.....

jon - thanks for the reply.
i tried this:

prompt> ssh server.net

i got an "open failed: no such file or directoy"

does that mean that ssh is not enabled on the server?  i pinged the 
server and it said it was alive...

If it's a linux or unix box use ssh or telnet to get a shell on the
remote system then follow the instructions in
http://www.mysql.com/documentation/mysql/full/index.html .

If it's a windows box then you have to use pcAnywhere or go to the
machine to set it up, unless there's a ssh or telnet server running on
the box.

Cheers,
  Gardner

Chris and I have been working on this through private emails, and we (I mean
he) finally figured out what the problem was...

session.cookie_path was set to /tmp instead of /.

I wanted to thank him for taking the time to help me work through this...

Thanks in large part to some of the recent discussions on this list,
I've finally implemented some stuff that allows me to select a bunch of
files and tar them up.  This works great for smaller archives.

If the resulting archive is very large, the download begins normally,
but halts at 40-41MB.  After a while, Mozilla comes back telling me that
the file could not be saved because the source file could not be read.

(For the record, yes, I have plenty of room on the partition to which
I'm downloading.)

The only settings I could find in php.ini that *might* apply are
max_execution_time = 30 and memory_limit = 8M.

Any ideas on how to make this work for archives of arbitrary size?  

Here's the code snippet for the tar stuff (yes, I know my variable names
are pretty atrocious) ...

function set_tar_headers () {
    header("Content-Type: application/x-tar");
    header("Content-disposition: attachment; filename=foo.tar");
}

function create_file_list ($foo) {
    while (list ($key, $val) = each ($foo)) {
        $a.=" $val";
    }
    $a = str_replace ($mp3_dir, "", $a);
    return $a;
}
....
//$foo is an array of filenames
    if ($action == "tar") {
        set_tar_headers();
        $a = create_file_list ($foo);
        chdir ($mp3_dir);
        passthru ("tar -cf - $a");
    }




This is all part of a larger script that allows me to search my music
collection, select the songs/playlists/directories I want to listen to,
and create a playlist of URLs to my server, so that I can play my own
music from any machine that has a decent connection.  Tarring and
zipping selections just seemed like a nice add-on to that functionality.

Thank you very much in advance for any insight!

Hello,
  I am using php 4.2.3 with the jdk1.3.1_04 running on RedHat 7.2 and
apache 1.3.22. The terms "Factory" and "Proxy" are similar to their
respective design patterns. I have a java Factory that creates Proxy
objects. The Factory returns a base interface that can be cast as the
class that was actually instantiated. 

  The problem is that after I call the Factory method
simpleCreateObject() from php I need to cast the variable returned as a
derived class from within php. In java I would just cast the return
value as whatever class I requested like so:

// java code to cast return type as derived class
  per = (GenericProxy)tcpb.simpleCreateObject("Person", 0, null);

// php code used to call simpleCreateObject()
  $per = $tcpb->simpleCreateObject('Person', 1, null);

How can I cast $per as a different class? 


Thank you,
  Gardner

to get my scripts to receive the cookies that I am setting along with
the POST and GET values from the preceding form.  How do I go about this

Nope, I mean: support for SSL+MySQL4 in PHP's mysql_connect. I know that
MySQL 4.0 supports SSL, but I don't know if PHP has/will have support for
MySQL connections using SSL in future versions.

Thanks.

Rodolfo (Tocayo!), 

    MySQL uses mysql_real_connect with an int client_flag to enable SSL. 
According to:

http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-connect.php

    The PHP mysql_connect will also use an int client_flag to enable SSL 
connections. It seems that they are going to implement the exact same flags. 
Note, it's planned for PHP v4.3.0

HTH.


Cheers, 

Rodolfo

I don't fully understand OOP, so my snippet might be wrong. But I need to 
emulate Multiple Inheritance for a script, so I've made the following, 
which I ask for opinions since I am not so sure if it will always work.

class multipleInheritance
{
    function callClass($class_to_call)
    {
        return new $class_to_call();
    }
}

class A
{
    function insideA()
    {
        echo "I'm inside A!<br />";
    }
}

class B
{

    function insideB()
    {
        echo "I'm inside B!<br />";
    }
}

class C extends multipleInheritance
{
    function insideC()
    {
        $a = parent::callClass('A');
        $a->insideA();
        $b = parent::callClass('B');
        $b->insideB();
    }
}

$c = new C();
$c->insideC();

--

And it echo:

I'm inside A!
I'm inside B!

I have a fairly large html document that I need to convert to xml.
The current format is is:
<DD> A whole bunch of text 
        <DT> Something else </DT>
(There is a new line in there before <DT>)

Which I need to convert to
<DD> A whole bunch of text </DD>
        <DT> Something else </DT>

Any ideas??

$new_text = str_replace("\n\t<DT>","</DD>\n\t<DT>",$your_text);

Assuming there is a tab in there...

You'd be better off getting an editor that'll do this for you. Textpad
lets you search and replace with regular expressions. Other programs do
too.

Hey all.  I've read the pear coding standards. 
I assume that if php has any official coding standards

then the pear standards would be them, correct?

Anyways, the pear docs on coding standards show
examples of using controls structures like 
the following:

if ( !$var ) {
    do_something(); 
}
else {
    do_something_else();
}

-------
But I really don't like putting the opening brace 
on the same line as the control statement.

I really prefer doing this:

if ( $var ) 
{   do_something();
}


or 

if( $var )
{   do_something();
}
else
{   do_something_else();
}

-------
Putting the opening brace one line down on the same
column that the control statement starts on seems to 
give me a much better visual cue, especially when
dealing with nested control statements. 

Is doing it my preferred way acceptable?
Will my code be looked down on?

thanks,
--ed

The best way for sure as I stand before God (if you believe in that) is as
follows:

    if( $foo )
    {
        // Do something.
    }
    else
    {
        // Do something else.
    }

Of course you're welcome to disagree ;)

Cheers,
Rob.

LOL! Right!  I figure that _I'm_ the one who has to
look at my code the most.  May as well leave it where
I put it, how I put it.

Thanks for the chuckle!

List,
        On my php.4.2.3, Apache 4.0.42 install my echo statements all output the 
number of characters written (in hex).

So this code:
echo "<addrone>$id->addrone</addrone>";
echo "<addrtwo>$id->addrtwo</addrtwo>";
echo "<city>$id->city</city>";

Makes this XML:

1d
<addrone>PO BOX 698</addrone>
13
<addrtwo></addrtwo>
1a
<city>ABCDEF GHIJKL</city>

Couldn't see anything in the bug report, ideas?

Hi every1 I'm buidin' up a form that should perform a couple of checks 
before submit.
I used javascript but as the form has got option fields also and some 
field changes upon the checkbox chosen
the script has to know when I'm just changing the option or when I'm 
tryin' 2 send the form...
(in order to change the option or eventually perform the check).
Can I do that on the same page? ..I mean can I pass a variable through 
javascript 2 php?
 
The problem is that if I call the submit button "ready2be_checked" and I 
use an onclick(validate_the_form) handle,
 javascript works fine but it misses the variable "ready2be_checked" so 
the "isset" statement for ex. if(isset($ready2be_checked)){ ....}
doesn't work! 
Using onsubmit instead,
javascript performs the check and sends the form anyway cause the isset 
check finds the variable  $ready2be_checked !!
? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Sorry if I posted it twice
Thanx in advance                                                        
           Ricky

Instead of check for $ready2be_checked, use a hidden form field instead of
relying on the submit button to be pressed.  If the Javascript auto-submits
the form the hidden field will still be there.

Hello All.

I have a small 'to-do list' that is working just fine.

the db-table structor is close to this:

id
datetime   (for date of doing the task)
into  (quick title/intro about task)
text  (guts of work I have to do)
active  (is task active or done)


Here is the question I've got:

My datestamp is simply m/d/y. (I need to keep that format)

I would like to be able to move a specific to-do up-or-down the list, for
the given days tasks.
Adding a new table field is not a problem, I'm just not sure how to
control the sort-order, or the re-arrange.
I'm also not against using an array (as a friend suggested) but I'm not
understanding what he was getting at. (quick conversation with him)
Anyway, any ideas on this sort of thing would be great!

Thanks.
John B. Abela

I found a good working program that does the trick. It does, however,
eliminate the process making mods or editing the source for good. I
found just encrypting the copyright part works great. Here's the
program: http://www.rssoftlab.com/

It's called PHP Encoder and I'm pretty sure it's 100% free.

Thanks,
Stephen

If you can turn it off via, .htaccess, you'd be better. The scripts will
run fine with $_POST or whatever, but realize your open to the
vulnerabilities that made OFF the default. If you use if($value)
anywhere, that value could come from the user. Just something to be
aware of.

Also, with register_globals ON, unregistering a session variable is
tricky. You have to use session_unregister("value") and
unset($_SESSION['value']) and maybe even unset($value); If you don't
ever unregister variables, then you won't have a problem.

Thanks John,

I had been debating which IP Iwould use for my site. With the information 
you've provided,  I will use the one that has register_globals=off. 

One re-write of all my code is enough. Besides, the purpose of the default 
'off' behavior is precisely why I'm using  $_SESSION's anyway.

I really appreciate the advice, since I'm almost about to put my site 
on-line. . . .  Just a few (hah!) last-minute-bugs (double-hah!) have to be 
cleared up first before 'InstantFame (tm)  or was that shame???. :> 

The last thing I need is another headache like the one I developed using CSS.

Thanks again,
Andre

Well, I didn't really mean to imply anything about people's honesty and so
forth...

I just wanted to say that validating (anything) on the client side is not
normally a good (and reliable) idea. Of course, as always mentioned,
validation on the server side is always better.

 I am trying to use curl to post data to a search engine and then
 return the results in a variable so I can manipulate it.
  I have tried this but it does not seam to work properly.
  This is just an example of how I am trying to do this I don't have
  to use google for the search engine just thought if I can get it
  working with this I can get it to work with others
  
$ch = curl_init ("http://www.google.com/";);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
$word="php";
$args="action=/search&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=$word&btnG=Google Search";
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $args);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
$data = curl_exec ($ch);
curl_close ($ch);
echo $data;

There does not seam to be much info or examples on using curl with php
is there anyplace that you know of that has more info than the manual

Hey,
I don't think you'll get php to work with google unless you use the google 
api - I heard that google has filtered out the php(and others) user-agent.
If you need more info on the google api just let me know.

Google uses GET anyway, not POST.

A simple fopen() is all you need, but then you'll be parsing HTML. The 
API is better for reliability.

I am kind of new to PHP. I know how to use a select statement and a query to
get data out of a table in MySQL, but how do I assign those fields to
variables? I know this must be easy! Thanks in advance!!

mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource
in /home/pay.php on line 51

You're query probably failed. Look at mysql_error().

Greetings folks.

I need my carriage returns to show up in my HTML output from my text form field.

There is a JavaScript function that will convert carriage return to <BR> tags, but is 
there a PHP function that will add <BR> or <P> tags to a text form field in place of 
the carriage returns a user might add.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I looked at phpclasses but saw nothing as simple as I wanted. There's a 
Perl module which does just what I want and perhaps I'll have to port 
it.

The class accepts an assoc array of name=>value, and the key to another 
assoc array which describes the constraints for the assoc array I'm 
passing in. Here is an example of the assoc array (it's Perl) which 
contains all my "forms" and then the class returns 3 assoc arrays 
(valid, invalid,missing using the key names, and this makes it very 
easy to use in your templates e.g. if missing_name, or invalid_zipcode 
etc.).

  my %forms = (  
    confirm_email => {
        required     =>
              [ qw(emailaddress emailaddress_verified 
searchengine_accounts) ],
        constraints  =>
      {
          emailaddress_verified => "email",
          emailaddress   => "email",
      },
      filters       => [ "trim" ],
    },
    verify_contact_info => {
        required     =>
              [ qw(country lastname firstname phone state zipcode city 
company street) ],
        optional     =>
        [ qw(fax) ],              
        constraints  =>
      {
          #phone          => "american_phone",
          #zipcode        => '/^\s*\d{5}(?:[-]\d{4})?\s*$/',
          state          => '/\w{2,}/',
          #fax            => "american_phone",
      },
      filters       => [ "trim" ],
      field_filters => { phone => ["phone"] },
    },

The Perl module that does this is:

HTML::FormValidator

So far I'm find PHP stuff that does everything under the sun. 

Anyone know of something like this?

Peter

Assumming that you tried the forms generation and validation class, what 
did you realize that was missing to match your needs?

Well that's the first thing I found and I downloaded it. It does much 
more than what I want, for instance here:

>  $subscription->AddInput(array(
>   "TYPE"=>"text",
>   "NAME"=>"email",
>   "MAXLENGTH"=>100,
>   "Capitalization"=>"lowercase",
>   "ValidateAsEmail"=>1,
>   "ValidationErrorMessage"=>"It was not specified a valid e-mail
>   address"
>  ));

Those attributes already exist in the form. I create the forms on the 
fly only once afterwhich they are in the hands of the designers to 
manipulate. I pass back to the form a data structure that will have 
something like:

missing_email
invalid_email

and the designer can check for this, lke this in smarty:

{if $error.missing_email}Yo give me email{/if}
{if $error.invalid_email}Please verify your email{/if}

and I have a script that will generated those if statements so one 
doesn't need to do a lot of typing. 

I don't like generating the form programmatically all the time ... I 
leave that to the *view*. 

I just want to pass the input data I received, the definition of the 
form I'm using with this data and have the function return the 3 arrays 
: good, invalid, missing. I've been very happy with this in Perl. 

The formgen is very powerful, too powerful and too intrusive into the 
other things I'm doing. I only need a small part of it. What I want has 
nothing really to do with html forms, just data validation.

The mail function is very problematic. Depending on the platform you are 
using, different reasons may lead to the problem you are experiencing.

Maybe you would like to try this PHP class for composing and sending 
messages, including with HTML, that auto-detects the OS and tries to 
work around some problems automatically for you:

http://www.phpclasses.org/mimemessage

Just let me know if it does not avoid your problem.
