This example will demonstrate how to Remove HTML Code from a blob of text using PERL Regular Expressions in PHP

This is a rather simple function, and is very handy for many uses throughout a dynamic website, so I thought I should give an example using PERL Regular Expressions via PHP

* html_remove($str)
* remove any html tags from a string/blob
function html_remove($str){

Example (Usage):

print html_remove("<p>Hello World</p>");

Example (Results):

Hello World
