PHP to Strip All Characters Not Allowed in URL

Recommended Posts

I have a mod-rewrite working that puts the title of an article into an html looking page like so.

[a href=\"http://www.sample.com/name-of-file.html\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.sample.com/name-of-file.html[/a]

I want to make sure that characters not allowed in the URL don't make it in there.

Is there a PHP function that removes everything that typically isn't allowed in an URL address?

such as ( ) " ' html tags carrots and more?

Thanks
Ryan

webaddress="www.[]'^mydomain.com";
webresult=str_repalce("[]\'\^\","",$webaddress);

echo $webresult;
