PHP eregi_replace() Function


Hello dear readers! welcome back to another section of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP eregi_replace() Function.

The eregi_replace() function works exactly like the PHP ereg_replace() function, except that the search for pattern in the strings are not case sensitive.

RECOMMENDED: PHP ereg() Function


The following is the syntax for the eregi_replace() function -

string eregi_replace (string pattern, string replacement, string originalstring);

Return Value

  • After the replacement has occurred the modified string will be returned.
  • If no matches are found, the string will not be changed.


Following is a simple example -

   $copy_date = "Copyright 2020";
   $copy_date = eregi_replace("([a-z]+)", "&Copy;", $copy_date);
   print $copy_date;


When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

&Copy;  2020
