This code snippet takes a string of text and removes all carriage returns, new lines, and tabs, replacing any matches with a simple blank space. An ideal way to “stringify” a potentially formatted lump of alphanumeric text.
Quick Fix Willis
Takes a lump of formatted text and turns it into a clean string:
// stringify formatted text $filtered = trim(preg_replace('/[\r\n\t ]+/', ' ', $filtered));
A nice little snippet to have in the toolbox.
