Please post the test data -- just the test data, not the code that doesn't work.  We only need to see the test data that you have created.  We especially need to see the part that shows us samples that should work and samples that should be filtered out.  You may also want to post the rules that describe why some samples work and some would be filtered out.

You can use this reference as you prepare the test data: SSCCE

Thanks, ~Ray

Please see http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_temp_rgb192.php

This gets close, but the original translation gets bollixed up with the "x" abbreviation for the extension.  I cannot imagine where all the '8' come from - that has the smell of a programming error upstream.  If this were my task, I think I would eliminate the option to have letters in the phone number.  That seems to be at least one major part of the confusion.

if you dont want 8888888888888888888888 then why you are passing $string='8888888888888888888888' to the following code


$string='8888888888888888888888';

echo '<br/>1-800-5551212: '. strtophone("1-800-5551212 $string");
echo '<br/>866-Big-Dogs: '. strtophone("866-Big-Dogs $string");
echo '<br/>202-537-7560: '. strtophone("202-537-7560 $string");
echo '<br/>703-356-5300 x2048: '. strtophone("703-356-5300 x2048 $string");
echo '<br/>(212) 555-1212: '. strtophone("(212) 555-1212 $string");
echo '<br/>1 + (212) 555-1212: '. strtophone("1 + (212) 555-1212 $string");
echo '<br/>2345678901: '. strtophone("2345678901 $string");
echo '<br/>12345678901: '. strtophone("12345678901 $string");
echo '<br/>two 345678901: '. strtophone("two 345678901 $string");

$string = '';
will get the correct output.

<?php

function strtophone($phone, $format=FALSE, $dlm='-')
{
    // HANDLE INPUT LIKE 1-800-BIG-DOGS
    $phone = strtoupper($phone);

  foreach (array('ZERO','ONE','TWO','THREE','FOUR','FIVE','SIX','SEVEN','EIGHT','NINE') as $number => $text)
  {
    $phone = str_replace($text, $number, $phone);
  }
  //http://php.net/manual/en/function.strtr.php
  $phone=strtr($phone,'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ','22233344455566677778889999');

    // DISCARD NON-NUMERIC CHARACTERS
    $phone = preg_replace('#\D#', '', $phone);

    // DISCARD A LEADING '1' FROM NUMBERS ENTERED LIKE 1-800-555-1212
    if ( $phone[0] == '1') $phone = substr($phone,1);

    // IF LESS THAN TEN DIGITS, IT IS INVALID
    if (strlen($phone) < 10) return FALSE;

    // IF IT STARTS WITH '0' OR '1' IT IS INVALID
    if ( $phone[0] == '0') return FALSE;
    if ( $phone[0] == '1') return FALSE;

  //SECOND DIGIT CANNOT BE '9' (YET) http://www.nanpa.com/area_codes/index.html
    if ( $phone[1] == '9') return FALSE;

    // ADD OTHER TESTS HERE AS MAY BE NEEDED

    // IF NOT FORMATTED
    if (!$format) return $phone;

    // ISOLATE THE COMPONENTS OF THE PHONE NUMBER
    $ac = substr($phone,0,3); // AREA
    $ex = substr($phone,3,3); // EXCHANGE
    $nm = substr($phone,6,4); // NUMBER
    $xt = substr($phone,10);  // EXTENSION

    // STANDARDIZE THE PRINTABLE FORMAT OF THE PHONE NUMBER LIKE 212-555-1212-1234
    $formatted_phone = $ac . $dlm . $ex . $dlm . $nm;
    if ($xt != '') $formatted_phone .= $dlm . $xt;
    return $formatted_phone;
}

$string='';

Or you can try with following modified code:

  {

thank you

yes you both answered the question

I created a new question where $string is more text (not an error with many 8's)

and with Ray's advice, eliminated 1800-big-dogs which he taught me.

I want the first phone number in a text block
