Can you please provide me with the PHP regular expression for the html tag for paragraph (using eregi() etc):

<p xxx xxx xxx>

moreover is it also possible to provide the PCRE version

thanks in advance.

Found it myself :-) (but PCRE version please???):


if ($_POST['submit'])
$mv_test = $_POST['test'];

if (eregi ("^<p.{0,}>$", $mv_test))
echo "Pattern matched";
echo "Pattern not matched";


<form name="form1" action="test3.php" method="post">

<input type="text" name="test">
<input type="submit" name="submit">
