I have a task where ill be parsing code from a pre-existing template into a variable...and then i need to isolate part of that and return it as the value of the variable to be submitted elsewhere.

Basically the string im looking at contains ","Id":16132379," where only the number is what im after as returning. What I've attempted comes down to:

Where "Id" is found return string following between ':' and ','. I really don't know much more on how to do this, I'm experienced in html and javascript but still learning php at a rapid pace - dont have much long-term experience to actively process code in my head(that i dont know.)

This is the only roadblock in my current project and any insight GREATLY appreciated! :confused:

str_replace(",", "", $str);
explode(":", $Str);

try this:


$result = preg_replace("/Id:(\d+),/","$1",$yourstring);

The variable I'll be working from will contain the following as an example, with varying data per each instance but always the same structure. Right now I'm only concerned with pulling is line 22, "Id":16132379,... but if it would be easier to parse this all to an array i'm open for all suggestions. This is typically all in a string with no returns or breaks, I formatted this way to be more readable.

use code tags, please. It's just a intuition and maybe I'm wrong but this is not json? If answer is yes why you don't use a json parser?

http://www.json.org/
see also the php section from the bottom of the page and:

or php manual:

! great!


$ret = json_decode($ret, true);

adds to an array in one step, hard to believe it was that easy.. I recognized this as obviously being pre-formatted for some sort of parsing, but I wasn't familiar with JSON at all. Thanks for catching that! :thumbsup:
