I want to extract the episode number from the name of TV Series.
e.g. If it is "Game of Thrones S06E01", Then I should get 01.
What I am trying is :
Praise the power of regular expressions then:
PHPthis would be:
<?php $data = <<<DATA Blacklist S01E01 Blacklist s01e01 (small "e" and "s") Blacklist S01E01.mkv Se7en S01E01 DATA; $regex = '~\b(?i)S\d+E(\d+)(?i-)\b~'; preg_match_all($regex, $data, $matches); print_r($matches); ?>
And see a demo on ideone.com.
See a demo on regex101.com (and mind the modifiers!).
