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

Remove Entire Word If The Word Contains Specific String?

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

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

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

And this is the str_replace i'm using:

$twit = str_replace($regex[$i],'', $twit);

how do I make it only remove a word if it's exactly the word in string, I mean, I have the following phrase: "#blitz na subida do alfabarra blitz" it will return me: "# alfabarra", I don't want the first "blitz" to be removed because it has a hash "#", i want it to output: "#blitz alfabarra", is it possible?
