$string = "What is my ip and my favorite address is ";

// check if string starts with "ha"
echo preg_match("/^Wh/",$string); // result 1
// check if string ends with "ip" - case insensitive
echo preg_match("/ip$/i",$string); // result 0
// match for exact string
echo preg_match("/^ip$/i",$string); //result 0
// match for empty string
echo preg_match("/^$/i",$string); //result 0
// match for string "http://"
echo preg_match("/http:///i",$string); //result 1
// search for a string that start's with w and finish with p
echo preg_match("/a.*d/i",$string); //result 1
// get domain from url
$string = " link";
preg_match_all( "/(http:\/\/)(www\.)?([a-z0-9-_]+).([a-z]+)/i", $string, $matches );
//get email addresses
$string = "If you want to get more info contact me at and you will recieve more details or at";
preg_match_all( "/([*+!.&$#¦\'\\%\/0-9a-z^_`{}=?~:-]+)@([a-z0-9]+\.)+([a-z0-9]){2,4}/i", $string, $matches );
//extract word and digit and insert it into an array with key names setted by me
$string = "foobar: 2008";
preg_match("/(?P<name>\w+): (?P<digit>\d)/",$string,$matches);
//get text between square brackets [This] is a [test] string, [eat] my [shorts]
$string = "[This] is a [test] string, [eat] my [shorts]";
//search and replace
$string = 'The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.';
$patterns[0] = '/quick/';
$patterns[1] = '/brown/';
$patterns[2] = '/fox/';
$replacements[0] = 'bear';
$replacements[1] = 'black';
$replacements[2] = 'slow';
$stringReturn = preg_replace($patterns, $replacements, $string);
echo $stringReturn; //The bear black slow jumped over the lazy dog.
// This example strips excess whitespace from a string
$string = 'foo    o';
$return = preg_replace("/\s+/"," ",$string);
echo $return; // return foo o
//reorder data
$string = '100 Rs 50';
$pattern = '/(\d+).(\w+) (\d+)/i';
$replacement = '${1}.$3 $2';
echo preg_replace($pattern, $replacement, $string); //return 100.50 Rs
//remove comments from text
$source = "How are you? /* Fine! */ Are you here?";
$return = preg_replace('/(\/\*.*\*\/)/',"", $source);
