Reading your other post, I think what you REALLY want to do is throw away an
variable that contains non-numeric values... Since you only want numbers,
then everything else must be a mistake, or an attack.
take the URL blah.php?foo=45&bah=hekygu
// do stuff
// do stuff
A LOT quicker than regexp, and you're changing the question from "i want to
strip this stuff out" to "i want to keep this stuff in", which is a lot
safer than trying to imagine everything a hacker might try... a good rule to
live by, even if it's not totally needed in this case.
