Array Replacing loop PHP

I want to do something like

$string = "? is ? but ? do ? know how to make it work.";
$array = array("This", "cool", "I", "not");
// $result = str_replace or preg_replace.. idk here

echo $result;

Open in new window


Result: This is cool but I do not know how to make it work.


Is this possible?

oops, sorry,

remove the below code

$value = $value * 2;  

Open in new window


$string = "? is ? but ? do ? know how to make it work.";   
$array = array("This", "cool", "I", "not");    
foreach ($array as &$value) {  
        $result = preg_replace('/?/', $value,$string,1) ;
} 
echo $result;

Is your original string contains only one character that needs to be changed to different values? I am not sure if you can do that. But if your $string is

$string = "? is * but $ do # know how to make it work";
$search = array("?" , "*" , "$", "#");
$replace = array("This", "cool", "I", "not");
$new_string = str_replace($search, $replace, $string);
