preg_grep返回匹配模式的数组条目

说明

array preg_grep ( string $pattern , array $input [, int $flags = 0 ] )

返回给定数组input中与模式pattern 匹配的元素组成的数组.

参数

pattern

要搜索的模式, 字符串形式.

input

输入数组.

flags

如果设置为PREG_GREP_INVERT, 这个函数返回输入数组中与 给定模式pattern匹配的元素组成的数组.

返回值

返回使用input中key做索引的数组.

A shorter way to run a match on the array's keys rather than the values:

<?php
function preg_grep_keys($pattern, $input, $flags = 0) {
    return
array_intersect_key($input, array_flip(preg_grep($pattern, array_keys($input), $flags)));
}
?>

This may be obvious to most experienced developers,but just in case its not,when using preg_grep to check for whitelisted items ,one must be very careful to explicitly define the regex boundaries or it will fail
<?php
$whitelist
= ["home","dashboard","profile","group"];
$possibleUserInputs = ["homd","hom","ashboard","settings","group"];
foreach(
$possibleUserInputs as  $input)
{
     if(
preg_grep("/$input/i",$whitelist)
    {
         echo
$input." whitelisted";
    }else{
         echo
$input." flawed";
    }

}
?>
This results in:

homd flawed
hom whitelisted
ashboard whitelisted
settings flawed
group whitelisted

I think this is because if boundaries are not explicitly defined,preg_grep looks for any instance of  the substring in the whole array and returns true if found.This is not what we want,so boundaries must be defined.

<?php
foreach($possibleUserInputs as  $input)
{
     if(
preg_grep("/^$input$/i",$whitelist)
    {
         echo
$input." whitelisted";
    }else{
         echo
$input." flawed";
    }

}
?>
this results in:
homd flawed
hom flawed
ashboard flawed
settings flawed
group whitelisted
in_array() will also give the latter results but will require few tweaks if say,the search is to be case insensitive,which is always the case 70% of the time

Run a match on the array's keys rather than the values:

<?php

function preg_grep_keys( $pattern, $input, $flags = 0 )
{
   
$keys = preg_grep( $pattern, array_keys( $input ), $flags );
   
$vals = array();
    foreach (
$keys as $key )
    {
       
$vals[$key] = $input[$key];
    }
    return
$vals;
}

- Add `filterKeys()`, because now only `filter()` (by values) exists.
- Add `anchored()` method (or other way) to use anchored patterns.
- Add a way to replace multiple strings with multiple replacements with one call to `preg_replace()`.
- Except from `filter()`/`filterKeys()`, add `except()`/`exceptKeys()` to filter out entries that match.

An even shorter way to run a match on the array's keys rather than the values:

<?php
function preg_grep_keys($pattern, $input, $flags = 0) {
    return
array_flip( preg_grep($pattern, array_flip($input), $flags ) );
}

A very simple example to match multiple "."(dot) in an array value:-

<?php

     $array
= array("23.32","22","12.009","23.43.43");
    
print_r(preg_grep("/^(\d+)?\.\d+\.\d+$/",$array));

?>
