    [PHP] Reading files

    Hello, I was wondering if anybody knew of a way that I can get certain things out of a text file. What I would be reading was a website, and get the HREF tags out of it. Any ideas?

    If I'm not clear let me know.

    Thanks

    well you have to first open up the html content using fopen and read the entire content using fread. then parse the content using preg_match

    if you search you might just find a peice of code with this functionality already

    good luck

    Is it possible to use preg_match in order to strip out anything with the HREF tags though? All I'm looking to get is the link inside of those tags.

    i just did some playing around with file_get_contents and preg_match

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $content 
    file_get_contents("test.htm");
    if(
    preg_match("/(?<!<a href=\")(http+(s)?:\/\/[^<>\s]+)/i"$content)) {
     echo 
    $content;
    }
    ?>
    just change the file in the file_get_contents

    Hi ya'll,

    I'm wondering if it is possible to make a function that will handle all checkbox values(0 or 1), and that the result of the function will be places inside the query statement.

    The result needs to appear at the place where I call the function.

    So I don’t have to handle all checkboxes individually.
    I have multiple checkboxes in one form so using a global var doesn’t do the trick, although not in this example but I want to reusing code.

    The function that checks the values is called ‘proc_chkbox’ as in proc(ess) ch(ec)kbox and the column is called ‘art_req_opt_active’


    PHP Code:
    function proc_chkbox($i){
      if(empty(
    $i)){
        echo 
    0;
      }else{
        echo 
    1;
      }
    }
    $date date(YmdHis);
    $qry "INSERT INTO art_req_options (art_req_opt_name, rt_req_opt_active,
    art_req_opt_date) VALUES('"
    .$_POST['art_req_opt_name']."',
     "
    .proc_chkbox($_POST['art_req_opt_active']).", $date)"
    thx in advance
