Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

    [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

    -1 posts per day. Huh ?
    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
