I'm not sure if this is in the right section or not...
But i'm just playing around in php, getting myself familiarized with it, and i was making a script that just autocreates a page of links, with categories n watnot in it. And i came to a little problem that i don't know how to get past.

Everything with the adding and watnot of the script is perfectly fine. What i can't seem to solve is to have it so that the link doesn't get parsed as a sublink of the site without needing me to put http://. For example, if i had http://site.com, and i entered in phpfreaks.com into my script, it would tag it on like http://site.com/phpfreaks.com. I don't want to just put the http in before hand, cause then that would cause problems if i entered http:// into the field as well, and end up being http://http://phpfreaks.com. Is there a php command that i could use to have it break out of forcing it from recognizing it as a subfolder?

if (!strstr($url,"http://")) {
  $url = "http://".$url;

Thankx for the help  ;D
