Parsing

How to parse Hyper-Links and E-mail addresses by BigBadDave
Posted: 28 Apr 02 (Edited 9 Jun 02)

Here is a quick function :

function parseHyper($string) {
    $search = array ("/([\w\.\/\&\=\?\-]+)@([\w\.\/\&\=\?\-]+)/",
                     "/((ftp(7?):\/\/)|(ftp\.))([\w\.\/\&\=\?\-]+)/",
                     "/((http(s?):\/\/)|(www\.))([\w\.\/\&\=\?\-]+)/");
    $replace = array ("<a href='mailto:$1@$2'>$1@$2</a>",
                      "<a href='ftp$3://$4$5' target='_blank'>$4$5</a>",
                      "<a href='http$3://$4$5' target='_blank'>$4$5</a>");
    return preg_replace ($search, $replace, $string);
}

just call it like this :

$string = "www.foo-bar.com";;
echo parseHyper($string);
