In my native development environment, I make heavy use of text-parsing functions, especially Middle and Position.
Middle ==> Let (string = “some big ugly block of text you’re parsing”; Middle (string, startposition, number of chars) )
Position ==> Let (string = “some big ugly block of text you’re parsing”; Position (string, “search string”, starting from, which occurrence).
Let (title = “PHP text parsing functions? how do I do Middle() and Position() in PHP?”;
Middle (title, Position (title, “?”, 1, 1)+2, Position (title, “PHP”, 1, 2)-Position (title, “?”, 1, 1)-3)
yields “how do I do Middle() and Position ()”
What would be the PHP equivalents of Middle() and Position(), and their syntax?
Also of use would be PatternCount(), or a PatternCount() equivalent. You know, ==>
PatternCount (string, "PHP)
yields 2 using the thread title again as ‘string’.
ETA: I did Google, just not with much success.
