If you're going to help, at least read the question. The poster already said
they tried that and it's not even a solution, anyhow. The "username" it
refers to in parse_url() is for URLs in the format of
http://username:[EMAIL PROTECTED].

Assuming $url is what you have above:

$tilde = strpos($url,"~");
$slash = strpos($url,"/",$tilde);
$length = $slash - $tilde;

$username = substr($url,$tilde,$length);

Or you can use a regular expression, but the above is probably faster.


In my tests, the first solution (using strpos) was the fastest by 35%.
