    Good PHP book for PregMatch commands

    I am looking for a good PHP book that discusses PregMatch in detail. The PHP books I have are novice books and don't contain much information.

    I know I could look online, but I like having a book as a refference, anyone know of a good PHP book that discusses this command in detail?

    Thanks

    Then the book you seek is one about regular expresions, not a 'PregMatch' function. Search amazon, read reader comments. Or try to find some regex tutorials by quering google for 'PHP and regular expresions'. Good luck.

    I have php by example (Butzon) and it does a great job of explaining regular expressions.

    That is the kind of code that if you dont use it in a while you need a refresher. The book does a great job teaching it and refreshing.

    In the end though, you really need to screw around to fully understand them.
