I have an array of regular expressions I use for form validations.

In php I have:
$var = array( "state"=>"/^(?-i:A[LKSZRAEP]|C[AOT]|D[EC]|F[LM]|G[AU]|HI|I[ADLN]|K[SY]|LA|M[ADEHINOPST]|N[CDEHJMVY]|O[HKR]|P[ARW]|RI|S[CD]|T[NX]|UT|V[AIT]|W[AIVY])$/" );

Open in new window


I am continually getting the warning:
Warning: preg_match(): Unknown modifier '|' in /var/www/html/clients/...

What am I missing ??

Thanks !

Try
$var = array( "state"=>"!^(?-i:A[LKSZRAEP]|C[AOT]|D[EC]|F[LM]|G[AU]|HI|I[ADLN]|K[SY]|LA|M[ADEHINOPST]|N[CDEHJMVY]|O[HKR]|P[ARW]|RI|S[CD]|T[NX]|UT|V[AIT]|W[AIVY])$!" );

Can you show the code that throws the error? The line you posted appears to compile fine for me.
