Get sections of text from a body of text

The Little Guy

Recommended Posts

I would like to grab sections out of a body of text, but I am not sure how to get started with this...


So, lets say I have an array of word to find in the doc

$words = array_unique(array('the', 'squirrel', 'jumped', 'the', 'fence'));


Using that array, I would like to get key section in the body of text (that was passed to the function) and get about 25 characters before the text and about 25 after. I want a maximum of three sections, and have them concatenated by some dots. basically it is the same look as google:


Once located, block off all but one using flashing, wire fence or hardware cloth. .... If the squirrel is jumping from high to low, as from a tree


Any Ideas how I could do something like this?
