PHP Question

String contains any items in an array (case insensitive)

How can i check if a

$string
contains any of the items expressed in an array?

$string = 'My nAmE is Tom.';
$array = array("name","tom");
if(contains($string,$array))
{
// do something to say it contains
}


Any ideas?

Answer

is that what you wanted? i hope that code is compiling :)

$string = 'My nAmE is Tom.';
$array = array("name","tom");
if(0 < count(array_intersect(array_map('strtolower', explode(' ', $string)), $array)))
{
  //do sth
}
