I have a string of Data. Inside this string there is a line of text that says


Where: 1234 Main Street.


What I would like to do is grab the address that comes after "Where:" and have the output with a link to google maps




Where: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=1234+Main+Street">1234 Main Street</a>


Would I use preg_replace for this? Or am I attacking this the wrong way?

$str = preg_replace('/Where: ([^\n]*)/m','Where: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=$1">$1</a>', $str );


that will leave spaces in the url.


IF you need the + in there then:


preg_match('/Where: ([^\n]*)/m', $str , $matches );
$term = str_replace(' ', '+', $matches[1]);
$str = preg_replace('/Where: ([^\n]*)/m','Where: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q='.$term.'">$1</a>', $str );
