This PHP preg_match online tool is design for you to try patterns on an input.


preg_match is a PHP function that test a pattern to a string or a text set in input.
The return will be a boolean value true or false. The pattern is a regular expression. Matches can be return by the function in a variable.

About patterns here are some information which may help you to build one :

Element Description
// Start and end delimiters
^ Meaning that the input has to start at this point of the pattern
$ Meaning that the input has to end at this point of the pattern
(.*?) Matches pretty much all the values possibles at this place, I actually use it a lot when I don't have to worry about unsafe values.
([0-9]) One digit between 0 and 9
([0-9]{3}) 3 digits between 0 and 9. You just have to change the 3 buy any length.
([0-9]*) All digits between 0 and 9, it is an unlimited length.
([a-zA-Z]*) All alphabetic strings


Example
/^([0-9a-zA-Z]*)$/

It will return true to all alphanumeric strings put in input.
