$variable='v.vm_name,p.companyid';


Expected Output

$variable='vm_name,companyid';


how can i achive this using preg_match or preg_replace something.

The value will be dynamic something like this

$variable='b.vm_name,tt.companyid';

Answer

Try this:

$newstr = preg_replace("/(?:\w\.|\w\w\.)/", "$2", $variable);

It will remove one or two leading chars and a dot.

Or simply : $newstr = preg_replace("/(?:\w+\.)/", "$2", $variable);
