Hi,

Struggling with the following, there's an adress, i would like to preg_match either an   or an empty space ([\s] ?) as both can be present.

Streetname City
Streetname City

So doing something like this:
preg_match('/ /s',$test,$matches);      
$show = $matches[0];      
echo "$show";

Works for the first sentence, but:
How can i catch both possibilties in one?

Any help would be great!
