Thread: Help with REGEX and PHP

  1. #1

    Help with REGEX and PHP

    i'm trying to make a very simple scraper, i cannot find the right regex to cut in a string everything what is between the tag <PRE> and <PRE>. i also need to recognize as good <PRE CLASS="anything">.

    when i try this, it works fine but it cuts up to the end of the site:
    '/<PRE CLASS="tiny">(.*?)/'

    but when i try:
    '/<PRE CLASS="tiny">(.*?)<\/PRE>/'

    it doesn't work.

    I also need a REGEX that allows me to select <Table></table>, <div "anything"></div>.

    thank you all!

    Check your flags/pattern modifiers. I remember I had a similar problem once and the flags fixed it
    I ended up using u, s, m and i
    e.g. '/<PRE CLASS="tiny">(.*?)<\/PRE>/usmi'
    I think the u and s flags are most important, the others you might not need.
