# Function cal in eregi_replace()

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
