bad word filter

Recommended Posts

<?php
/*******************************************************************************
**Description:

   returns string with all the words filtered, preserving the non-masked
   characters' case in the matched word. 

**Syntax:

   string filter(string $str[, bool $is_whole_word]); 

**Parameters:

   str           - The string to be filtered
   is_whole_word - If set to TRUE, only whole words will be filtered. If set to
                   FALSE, it will match words within words. Defaults to TRUE if
                   not specified.

**Examples:

   echo filter("FucK you moTherfUckeR"); 
   // output: F*cK you moTherfUckeR

   echo filter("FucK you moTherfUckeR", false); 
   // output: F*cK you moTherf*ckeR   

**Internal Syntax & Parameters:

   $wordlist = array($key1 => $value1[, $key2 => $value2, [etc..]]]); 

   key   - The word to search for.
   value - The filter for the key. Even if is_whole_word is set to FALSE, only the
           the key substring of the word will be masked. In principle, anything 
           that evaluates (strtolower($value{$pos}) == strtolower($badword{$pos})) 
           to FALSE will be considered a mask.      

   Examples: key: sex
   value | badword | replacement 
   s3x   | sex     | s3x
   s3x   | SEX     | S3X
   *     | sex     | *
   ****  | sex     | ****
   s3x   | sexual  | s3xual
   s3x   | SeXual  | S3Xual
   *     | sexual  | *ual
   s3x   | asexual | as3xual
   *     | asexual | a*ual
