I want everything inside the a tag, to the end
It works when there are no additional tags within the
<a> tag, but what if there are?
I want to know if you can tell it to grab everything up to
[^</a>] instead of
Doing it with
/<a>(.*)<\/a>/ doesn't work well. Sometimes I get everything in the
<a> tag and other times I get tons of lines included in that call.
should work. The ? makes it lazy, so it grabs as little as possible before matching the
</a> part. but using . will mean that it matches everything until it finds
</a>. If you want to be able to match across lines, you can use the following if with preg_match
The "s" at the end puts the regular expression in "single line" mode, which means the . character matches all characters including new lines. See other useful modifiers
