Remove everything but numbers from a string

 / Published in: PHP

Make it $newstring = eregreplace("[^A-Za-z0-9]", "", $string );

  1. $string = "(032)555-5555";
  2. $new_string = ereg_replace("[^0-9]", "", $string );
  3. echo $new_string;

try replacing the second line with the following:

$newstring = pregreplace('[\D]', '', $string);

It is slightly shorter, and a bit faster.
