I'm just wondering how I could remove the text between a set of parentheses and the parentheses themselves in php.
I would like it to delete (Test1) and only leave ABC
$string = "ABC (Test1)"; echo preg_replace("/\([^)]+\)/","",$string); // 'ABC '
preg_replace is a perl-based regular expression replace routine. What this script does is matches all occurrences of a opening parenthesis, followed by any number of characters not a closing parenthesis, and again followed by a closing parenthesis, and then deletes them:
Regular expression breakdown:
/ - opening delimiter (necessary for regular expressions, can be any character that doesn't appear in the regular expression \( - Match an opening parenthesis [^)]+ - Match 1 or more character that is not a closing parenthesis \) - Match a closing parenthesis / - Closing delimiter
