That's correct, so this is bogus. Try using
ereg()/preg_match() with the optional registers used in
the third argument to get the results you're looking for.

well,

maybe the matching string should be considered as a normal one, so we
can use some functions on it.

this would render ereg_replace function even more powerfull, isn't it ?

Using strtolower("HREF=\"\\1\"") as parameter is like using
"href=\"\\1\"" directly.
First the strtolower is processed and then that result is used as
parameter.

You have to change your search/replace pattern to get what you want.

The function works correct.

Description:
------------
Hi,

i'm trying to replace a portion of string by its strtolowered
equivalent

see reproduce code and results below : it should give
"href=javascript:comment()" but only "HREF" is lowered, not the
matching string \1



Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
$newsaff = "<A HREF=\"JAVASCRIPT:COMMENT()\">THIS IS A TEST LINK</A>";

$newsaff =
ereg_replace("HREF=\"([^\"]+)\"",strtolower("HREF=\"\\1\""),$newsaff);

print $newsaff;
?>

Expected result:
----------------
<A href="javascript:comment()">THIS IS A TEST LINK</A>

Actual result:
--------------
<A href="JAVASCRIPT:COMMENT()">THIS IS A TEST LINK</A>


------------------------------------------------------------------------
