Hi All,

Not too familiar with this but I think it should be simple for an expert with the subject.

The following  is an example of code stored in a variable on my site, I have many of these on the site that are just like this:

<img class="image10" title="" src="uploads/images/stock_photo_1.jpg" alt="" />

Open in new window

I need a php function that will output only the data within the src quotes. Desired output for this example would be:


Open in new window

Thank you in advance. 500pts for urgency.
