HI All;

I have the following string:

"MyODBC List" <myodbc@lists.mysql.com>

I want to lose everything but what is inside the <>, so I need a function/regexp that takes the string above and returns:

myodbc@lists.mysql.com

Lots of points because I want to deal with this quickly.

preg_match_all("|<(.*)>|U",$text,$res);

there is a syntex error in this.

$text = 'MyODBC List <myodbc@lists.mysql.com>';

preg_match_all("|<(.*)>|U",$text,$res);

print_r($res[0]);

Man, thank for fast response. Any way to avoid the hassle of dealing with a return in an array?
