Regex Validation - Use Alphanumeric As Well As Dash (-) Underscore (_) And Period (.)

I need to use PHP to validate usernames, and I only want them to use alphanumeric, as well as dash (-), underscore (_) and period (.) Is this right?

preg_match("/[A-Za-z0-9_-.]/",$text);

Regex - Alphanumeric Characters Along With Underscore And Space

I would like to know the regex for the following: input text can contain alphanumeric characters along with underscore and space for example: "this is user_name"
i used the following:

[php]/^[a-zA-Z0-9]+$/[/php]

this works but not perfectly because when the only space bar is pressed it takes the value, i want to prevent this, space should be @ the beginning, what will be the regex for this?

Limit The Period To "Only Allow 1 Period Per Set Of Bracket" In The Regex?

I worked out this regex and its working close but only one more problem in that, it matches any word with more than one period (.)

For example: stuf... (got matched)

How do I limit the period to "Only allow 1 period per set of bracket" in the regex?

'#((w+://)?(w+.)([a-z0-9-/.?=_&%])+)#i'

Regex Match If Maximum Two Occurrences Of Dot And Dash?

I need a regular expression that will match any string containing at most 2 dashes and 2 dots.
There does not HAVE to be a dash nor a dot, but if there is 3+ dashes or 3 dots or even both 3+ dashes and 3+ dots, then the regex must not match the string.Intended for use in PHP.I know of easy alternatives using PHP functions, but it is to be used in a large system that just allows filtering using regular expressions.

Example string that will be MATCHED:
Example string that will NOT be matched

Replace All Proceeding Underscores With 1 Underscore Using A Regex?

[code].....

PS: The reason a preg_replace (regex) is preffered (although I understand its not 100% always correct) because it's more precise then using a regular string replacing function.

Regex - Check If The String Only Consist Letters A - Z And Numbers And Underscore(_) And Hyphen(-)

I'm looking for a regex that will check if the string only consists of the letters a-z, numbers, underscore (_) and hyphen (-). I have tried this, but it does not work:

if (!preg_match('/^a-zA-Z0-9_-$/', $string)) {
$reg_Error[] = 2;
}

Also, can I check the length with regex? If not, I will just do it with PHP.

Tell Regex To Match At Least X Number Of Alphanumeric?

I have form where user submits field. Field can have letters, numbers, and punctuation. But I want to check to make sure that at least 3 of the characters are letters. How can I regex that? For example,

$string = "ab'c";

And I need something like,

if (preg_match("/[a-z]{3}/i", $string))
print "true";
else
print "false";

That string has three letters, even though it has an apostrophe. It should test true. But for some reason, that tests false right now.

Regex - Add A Space Between A Period And The Next Word/letter When There's None?

I need to use php to add a space between a period and the next word/letter when there's none.For example, "This is a sentence.This is the next one." needs to become "This is a sentence. This is the next one." Notice the added space after the first period.My problem is that even if I'm able to make a regular expression that finds every dot followed by a letter, how do I then replace that dot with a "dot + space" and keep the letter?

Regex Using Preg_replace : "Delimiter Must Not Be Alphanumeric Or Backslash" Error?

I am trying to take a string of text like so:

$string = "This (1) is (2) my (3) example (4) text";

In every instance where there is a positive integer inside of parentheses, I'd like to replace that with simply the integer itself.The code I'm using now is:

$result = preg_replace("((d+))", "$0", $string);

But I keep getting a "Delimiter must not be alphanumeric or backslash" error. Any thoughts? I know there are other questions on here that sort of answer the question, but my knowledge of regex is not enough to switch it over to this example.

Regex Pattern For URL Validation?

I'm using this PHP function for validate an URL.

$url = preg_replace("/[^A-Za-z0-9-/.:]/", "", trim($url));
$url = preg_replace('%^(?!https?://www.).*%', 'http://www.$0', $url);

But, this isn't perfect for me. I want to this controls :

1 - Is it starting with http:// or https:// ? If not, add http (or https)

2 - If it hasn't subdomain and if it hasn't www , add . But if it has subdomain don't add www.

Examples :

**example.com**
CONVERT -> url
**www.example.com**
CONVERT -> url
**subdomain.example.com**
CONVERT -> url
**http://subdomain.example.com**
CONVERT -> url

So, i need improve my REGEX pattern. But i can't. How can i use this ?

Regex - UTF-8 Validation Without Using Preg_match()?

I need to validate some user input that is encoded in UTF-8. Many have recommended using the following code:

preg_match('/A(
[x09x0Ax0Dx20-x7E]
| [xC2-xDF][x80-xBF]
| xE0[xA0-xBF][x80-xBF]
| [xE1-xECxEExEF][x80-xBF]{2}
| xED[x80-x9F][x80-xBF]
| xF0[x90-xBF][x80-xBF]{2}

[Code]...

Yes, it's very long. I hope I've understood correctly how that regular expression works.
