Last Word Of String UpperCase?

Aug 30, 2010

I try to accomplish the following.I have a string like: “volkswagen-golf-gti” **

And I want it to change the string into: “Volkswagen Golf GTI” (last part completely uppercase)

But I have some difficulties understanding preg_replace.

Right now I have the following code:
$string = 'volkswagen-golf-gti'; 
$string2 = ucwords(str_replace('-', ' ', $string)); 
$string2 = preg_replace("/s+S+$/e", "strtoupper('\1')", $string2); 
echo $string2; 


How can I change the code so it select the last part of $string2 and makes that part uppercase? So the result of echo $string2; will be: Volkswagen Golf GTI ** $string can be anything, not only volkswagen-golf-gti

Assuming I have a string "HET1200 text string" and I need it to change to "HET1200 Text String". Encoding would be UTF-8.

How can I do that? Currently, I use mb_convert_case($string, MB_CASE_TITLE, "UTF-8"); but that changes "HET1200" to "Het1200.

I could specify an exception, but it won't be an exhaustive. So I rather all uppercase words to remain uppercase.

Remove Entire Word If The Word Contains Specific String?

Oct 8, 2010

I would like to do the following, preferably with PHP:

Remove an entire word if a part of the word contains a specific string. This should be case insensitive and work multiple times, e.g. on a large text.

match = "www."
lots_of_random_text = "... hello and welcome to! blah blah"
result = magic_function(lots_of_random_text, "www.")

result should now equal to: "... hello and welcome to blah blah".

How would I do this the most efficient way?

Str_replace() - Remove A Word If It's Exactly The Word In String

May 2, 2011

I'm cleaning a string removing strings in this array:

$regex = array("subida", " de"," do", " da", "em", " na", " no", "blitz");

How would i go about searching for a whole word in the string?

Strip First Word From A String?

Dec 1, 2010

I basically have a script that lets users post comments but I have it setup so that at the begin of every comment the user put in the script puts in hate automactically which is how I want it to work, but sometimes the user put in hating themselves and it comes out with hating hating and then users comment. how I can get it to strip out hating or hates if it is the first word in the sentence inputted by the user? At the moment I have it set to remove hating but it removes it where ever it is used in the sentence which is not good at the moment. Here is some of the code that is being used.

if (strpos($content, 'hating') !== false) {
$content = str_replace("hating", "", $content);


SET story='hating " is where I have set it to put in the word hating and include it in the database when submitted.

Regex - Get Particular Word From String?

Say you have a string, but you don't know what it contains. And you want to replace all occurences of a particular word or part of a word with a formatted version of the same word. For example, I have a string that contains "lorem ipsum" and i want to replace the entire word that contains "lo" with "lorem can" so that the end result would be "lorem can ipsum" but if I put the string "loreal ipsum" through the same function, the result would now be "loreal can ipsum".
