PHP 5.5.16 is released

preg_filter

(PHP 5 >= 5.3.0)

preg_filterPerform a regular expression search and replace

Descrição

mixed preg_filter ( mixed $pattern , mixed $replacement , mixed $subject [, int $limit = -1 [, int &$count ]] )

preg_filter() is identical to preg_replace() except it only returns the (possibly transformed) subjects where there was a match. For details about how this function works, read the preg_replace() documentation.

Valor Retornado

Returns an array if the subject parameter is an array, or a string otherwise.

If no matches are found or an error occurred, an empty array is returned when subject is an array or NULL otherwise.

Exemplos

Exemplo #1 Example comparing preg_filter() with preg_replace()

<?php
$subject 
= array('1''a''2''b''3''A''B''4'); 
$pattern = array('/\d/''/[a-z]/''/[1a]/'); 
$replace = array('A:$0''B:$0''C:$0'); 

echo 
"preg_filter returns\n";
print_r(preg_filter($pattern$replace$subject)); 

echo 
"preg_replace returns\n";
print_r(preg_replace($pattern$replace$subject)); 
?>

O exemplo acima irá imprimir:

preg_filter returns
Array
(
    [0] => A:C:1
    [1] => B:C:a
    [2] => A:2
    [3] => B:b
    [4] => A:3
    [7] => A:4
)
preg_replace returns
Array
(
    [0] => A:C:1
    [1] => B:C:a
    [2] => A:2
    [3] => B:b
    [4] => A:3

As I had to work with PHP5.2.X and needed preg_filter I wrote a quick and dirty workaround.

<?php
 
if (!function_exists('preg_filter')) {
 
    function
preg_filter($pattern, $replace, $subject, $limit = -1 , &$count = null) {
   
      if(!
is_array($subject)) {
       
$noArray = 1 ;
       
$subject = array($subject);
      }

     
$preg = preg_replace($pattern, $replace, $subject, $limit,  &$count);

     
$diff = array_diff($preg, $subject);
     
      if(
$noArray == 1) $diff = implode($diff) ;

      return
$diff ;
     
    }
   
  }
?>

Another way to filter an array, and simply return the matching items: preg_grep!
