Title Test Find Pattern Title
Expression
href[ ]*=[ ]*('|\")([^\"'])*('|\")
Description
the regex's on this site for pulling links off a page always seemed to be faulty, or at least never worked with PHP, so i made this one. simple, as i'm an amateur with regex's, but stumbled thru it and this one actually works. tested with PHP function: preg_match_all("/href[ ]*=[ ]*('|\")([^\"'])*('|\")/",$string,$matches)
Matches
href="index.php" | href = 'http://www.dailymedication.com' | href = "irc://irc.junk
Non-Matches
href=http://www.dailymedication.com

as with the previous comment, me, check the Sample Non-matches. why is everyone repeating the Sample Non-matches as if they discovered something new?!

Title: Does not work on href's not enclosed in quotes

Comment:
If the url is not enclosed in quotes, this regex fails. Such as in this case: href=just/an/example/of/a/nonparsing/url.html
