$line1 = "line 1";
$line2 = "line 2";
$line3 = "line3";

echo "$line1";
echo "$line2";
echo "$line3";Is that what you meant?

Hi stevenmw,

that is a multi line text for example like

$string ='Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the=
printing and typesetting industry=
Lorem Ipsum has been the industrys=
standard dummy text ever since the 1500s=
when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled=
it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries=
but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged=
It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, =
and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum=';

and i am trying to remove the '=' sign and white space from each line.

Can you post your code?

$line="line1 line2 line3";
I would think this would work?

The = is obviously because it is inside of the variable. I would think the spacing is due to the code being on separate lines.

Hi stevenmw,

Thanks for the reply,
Finally i have found the solution . :)


$line = preg_replace("/=\s+/","",$line);
$line = substr_replace($line, '',-1);

Thank you very much for your updates.
