sql_regcase

(PHP 3, PHP 4 )

sql_regcase --  Make regular expression for case insensitive match

Description

string sql_regcase ( string string)

Returns a valid regular expression which will match string, ignoring case. This expression is string with each alphabetic character converted to a bracket expression; this bracket expression contains that character's uppercase and lowercase form. Other characters remain unchanged.

Example 1. sql_regcase() example

<?php
echo sql_regcase ("Foo - bar.");
 ?>

prints:

[Ff][Oo][Oo] - [Bb][Aa][Rr].

This can be used to achieve case insensitive pattern matching in products which support only case sensitive regular expressions.
