help with preg_match
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
Hello,I am trying to use preg_match to match something from an html file. Within the html file is some text that looks like:
<span>Something, something end</span>I know that the text ends 'end', but I don't know what the Something, something is. I am using preg_match as follows:
preg_match('/[^>]*end/',$curl_response,$matches); I want to match 'end' and everything before it that is not '>'.The problem appears to be with the '>'. I have tried escaping (\>), but it didn't make a difference. The php script hangs when it tries to run this function.
