i have tried a few things to get a last part out
i done this:
$string = 'Sim-only 500 | Internet 2500';
preg_replace("Sim-Only ^([1-9]|[1-9][0-9]|[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9])$ | Internet ","",$string
If you're after the last word in a sentence, why not just do something like this?
$string = 'Sim-only 500 | Internet 2500'; $pieces = explode(' ', $string); $last_word = array_pop($pieces); echo $last_word;
There's a fairly good blog post here that goes into more details of ways how to do this.
I wouldn't recommend using regular expressions as it's unnecessary, unless you really want to for some reason.
$string = 'Retrieving the last word of a string using PHP.'; preg_match('/[^ ]*$/', $string, $results); $last_word = $results; // $last_word = PHP.
substr() method they gave is probably abit better
$string = 'Retrieving the last word of a string using PHP.'; $last_word_start = strrpos($string, ' ') + 1; // +1 so we don't include the space in our result $last_word = substr($string, $last_word_start); // $last_word = PHP.
it is faster, although it really doesn't make that much of a difference on things like this. If you're constantly needing to know the last word on a 100,000 word string, you should probably be going about it in a different way.
