Regular expressions? What's that?

Posted by Stanislav Furman on April 29, 2014

Apparently, the person who wrote this code has never heard about regular expressions. :)

<?php
$find = str_replace(",", "", $find);
$find = str_replace(".", "", $find);
$find = str_replace("/", "", $find);
$find = str_replace(" ", "", $find);
$find = str_replace("-", "", $find);
$find = str_replace("+", "", $find);
$find = str_replace("#", "", $find);
?>

Please, never repeat this! :)

There is a lot of sources saying that Microsoft will rename Nokia to Microsoft Mobile when the deal is closed. It is not officially confimed yet, but looks like it's going there.

Anyhow, RIP Nokia. It's sad to see how old good brands die.
