Comment:
ok, the error is: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: Compilation failed: unrecognized character after (?< at offset 16 on helper.php file from mod_rokmininews for joomla ibelieve that this commnd incompatible with PHP 5+ the full wrong line is line is: preg_match( "'src=(?:\"|\')?(?<imgSrc>[^>]*[^/].(?:jpg|bmp|gif|png))(?:\"|\')?'", $text, $matches ); the sugeston of roberto is: Instead of "[^>]*" use ".*?" do not have this expecific on the line, soh i do this and work! OK LINE COMMAND: preg_match( "'src=(.*?:\"|\')*?(.*?<imgSrc>[^<]*[^/].(.*?:jpg|bmp|gif|png))(.*?:\"|\')?'", $text, $matches ); look the suggestion .* is used in all ? of commandline VISIT MY WEBSITE: http://www.888brazil.tk

apparently this site uses the .net framwork... here's the above regex ready to be used in a PHP preg_match_all() context. -(?P<HTML><a.*?href\s*=\s*[\"\']?(?P<HRef>[^"'>\s]*)[\"\']?.*?>(?P<Title>[^<]+|.*?)?</a\s*>)-


Title: Similar Problem

Comment:
I'm having the same problems as Leo... this regex does exactly what I want it to (in the test area of this site), but then in php 5 using preg_match_all I get the error: [error] PHP Warning: preg_match_all() [<a href='function.preg-match-all'>function.preg-match-all</a>]: Compilation failed: unrecognized character after (?&lt; at offset 33 in /Users/jchris/Sites/tanager.php on line 21 this is the "H" is there another regex library I can get for php that will work here? thanks!

Hello, I tried this regex with "The Regex Coach" and it displays the following error: "Character 'H' may not follow '(?<' at position 3". I like this regex as I tested it on this Site but I don't know how to translate it into perl regex syntax... regards, Leo
