Error preg match function preg-match Unknown modifier in raptr php on line 14

0 votes

I'm currently working on parsing an RSS feed. I've gotten the data I need no problem, and all I have left is parsing the game title.

Here is the code I currently have (ignore the sloppiness, it is just a proof of concept):

<?php
$url = 'http://edureka.co';

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); 
$result = curl_exec($ch); 
curl_close($ch);

$xml = new SimpleXMLElement($result);

$lastgame = $xml->channel->item[0]->description;
preg_match('[a-zA-Z]+</a>.$', $lastgame, $match);

echo $match;
?>

Everything was working great, but then I started getting this error:

Warning: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: 
Unknown modifier '+' in raptr.php on line 14

The only thing I have left is to strip out the closing anchor tag and the period, but I can't seem to figure out why it isn't liking the '+'. Any ideas?

Hello,

Try this code:

preg_match('/[a-zA-Z]+<\/a>.$/', $lastgame, $match);
print_r($match);

Using / as a delimiter means you also need to escape it here, like so: <\/a>.
