Modification to the previous regular expression

Hi Guys,

sorry to bother you again...

The previous regular expression worked like a charm but now, I want to exclude this specific string from it:
"{\pict\wmetafile8\picw6615\pich1852\picwgoal3750\picscalex150\pichgoal1050\picscaley150\sspicalign0 " followed by anithing and closed by "}"

So, I want to replace all the "{\pict" followed by anything and closed by "}" except if it is the block I don't want to replace

Can any of you help me on this one

Btw, any good regular expression book you could suggest ?

Regards

Try this:

$toExclude = preg_quote('\wmetafile8\picw6615\pich1852\picwgoal3750\picscalex150\pichgoal1050\picscaley150\sspicalign0','/');
echo preg_replace("/\{\\\\pict(?!$toExclude).*?\\}/s", '', $s);

Sorry, I can't recommend a book - you might be best asking that as a separate question to get a better response.

But if you're not aware of the PCRE Cheat Sheet, it's well worth bookmarking - it's linked from here:
