PHP Functions

Function: preg_grep

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

preg_grep --  Return array entries that match the pattern

Description

array preg_grep ( string pattern, array input [, int flags] )

preg_grep() returns the array consisting of the elements of the input array that match the given pattern .

flags can be the following flag:

PREG_GREP_INVERT

If this flag is passed, preg_grep() returns the elements of the input array that do not match the given pattern . This flag is available since PHP 4.2.0.

Since PHP 4.0.4, the results returned by preg_grep() are indexed using the keys from the input array. If this behavior is undesirable, use array_values() on the array returned by preg_grep() to reindex the values.

Example 1. preg_grep() example

<?php
// return all array elements
// containing floating point numbers
$fl_array = preg_grep("/^(\d+)?\.\d+$/", $array);
?>
