ereg_replace script remove backslash for search \141 to result a

Recommended Posts

I have searched and searched and tried and tried...

Can anyone provide assistance with a script as follows:

PHP code
Search and Replace using ereg_replace
Search on '\141' that is with a backslash in the search variable
Result to 'a' that is alphanumeric replacement

The ereg_replace is removing the backslash in the search retrieval but is placing a backslash in the search replace e.g. '\a'

I have tried using single quotes, double quotes, many variations but cannot find a reg_replace expression to remove the backslash and not include in the result search.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

have you tried working with:
[code]stripslashes()[/code] instead? it sounds like it'd be perfect for you.
