Greetings all,

I need to call a function each time php replaces a string with ergei_replace. here is the code:

     # Mathes %HZE_*
     $RX_E_P = '%HZE_([[:alpha:]/_0-9]*)';
     # Mathes %HZI_*
     $RX_I_P = '%HZI_([[:alpha:]/_0-9]*)';
     # Mathes <HAZEL_DATE[*]>|<HAZEL-DATE[*]>
     $RX_D_P = '(<[[:space:]]*HAZEL_DATE[^>]*>)|(<[[:space:]]*HAZEL-DATE[^>]*>)';
     $DATE_VAR = 'HZDATE';
     reset($StringTemp);
     while(list($k,$v)=each($StringTemp))
     {
          if(eregi($RX_E_P,$v) && $v = str_replace('"','',eregi_replace($RX_E_P, (STRING) h3m_get("QUERY","\\1") ,$v)))
          {
               echo "$v\n";
               #$outTemp[$k] = '"'.h3m_get("QUERY","$v").'"';
          }
          elseif(!eregi($RX_D_P,$v) || !$outTemp[$k] = eregi_replace($RX_D_P,h3m_get("QUERY","$DATE_VAR"),$v))
          {
               $outTemp[$k] = $v;
          }

I Know that PHP is not calling the function because I have the function set to echo each time it is called and it isn't echoing.
thanks
~Jay

Can you try ...

while(list($k,$v)=each($StringTemp))
    {
    echo "$k=$v<br>";
    ...

just to make sure you are splitting correctly.


What does the h3m_get function return. Echo this out as well ...

while(list($k,$v)=each($StringTemp))
    {
    echo "$k=$v<br>" . h3m_get("QUERY","\\1") . "<br>" . h3m_get("QUERY","$DATE_VAR") . "<br>";
    ...

You might simply be missing some parenthesis...

Try ...


while(list($k,$v)=each($StringTemp))
    {
    if(eregi($RX_E_P,$v) && ($v = str_replace('"','',eregi_replace($RX_E_P, (STRING) h3m_get("QUERY","\\1") ,$v))))
         {
              echo "$v\n";
              #$outTemp[$k] = '"'.h3m_get("QUERY","$v").'"';
         }
         elseif(!eregi($RX_D_P,$v) || !($outTemp[$k] = eregi_replace($RX_D_P,h3m_get("QUERY","$DATE_VAR"),$v)))
         {
              $outTemp[$k] = $v;
         }
     }

Regards,

Richard.

P.S. what sort of values are you putting into $StringTemp and what is coming out of h3m_get?

Richard,

I thank you for your comment. I have already found the proper solution which was to use the preg_replace() with the 'e' modifyer.

I will still award the points as your comments show that you were most definately trying to help.

Thank you again,
~Jay
