re_match()

Purpose

re_match(expr, re)

Returns 1, if expr matches re, 0 otherwise. Uses POSIX ERE.

Note

Functions using regular expressions tend to be slow and other options may be faster.

Example

In the following example it is checked if the msg object matches the regex string.

re_match($msg,'(5[1-5][0-9]{14})')
