Most Confusing Function/Snippet

Recommended Posts

for those of you who actually [b]read[/b] the manual (which [b]should[/b] be everyone!!!), i'm curious to what the least helpful, or even the most confusing example code you've found is. i'll have to say that the most confusing to me initially was the code example for the eval() function:
[quote]
[code]
<?php
$string = 'cup';
$name = 'coffee';
$str = 'This is a $string with my $name in it.';
echo $str. "\n";
eval("\$str = \"$str\";");
echo $str. "\n";
?>
[/code]
The above example will output:
[code]
This is a $string with my $name in it.
This is a cup with my coffee in it.
[/code]
[/quote]

not only was that extremely confusing, but after reading the description of the function and playing around with it, it only got worse... thankfully, i was able to come to an understanding of it, but it was quite difficult.

so, what's your story?

Well, the LEAST useful thing I have found is PREG_ANYTHING! I can't ever get it to work!
I Always end up doing something with String_Replace()
