PHP Question

Split camelCase word into words with php preg_match (Regular Expression)

How would I go about splitting the word:

oneTwoThreeFour


into an array so that I can get:

one Two Three Four


with
preg_match
?

I tired this but it just gives the whole word

$words = preg_match("/[a-zA-Z]*(?:[a-z][a-zA-Z]*[A-Z]|[A-Z][a-zA-Z]*[a-z])[a-zA-Z]*\b/", $string, $matches)`;

Answer

You can also use preg_match_all as:

preg_match_all('/((?:^|[A-Z])[a-z]+)/',$str,$matches);
