str_ireplace(3) [php man page]

STR_IREPLACE(3) 							 1							   STR_IREPLACE(3)

str_ireplace - Case-insensitive version ofstr_replace(3).

mixed str_ireplace (mixed $search, mixed $replace, mixed $subject, [int &$count]) DESCRIPTION
This function returns a string or an array with all occurrences of $search in $subject (ignoring case) replaced with the given $replace value. If you don't need fancy replacing rules, you should generally use this function instead of preg_replace(3) with the i modifier. PARAMETERS
If $search and $replace are arrays, then str_ireplace(3) takes a value from each array and uses them to search and replace on $subject. If $replace has fewer values than $search, then an empty string is used for the rest of replacement values. If $search is an array and $replace is a string, then this replacement string is used for every value of $search. The converse would not make sense, though. If $search or $replace are arrays, their elements are processed first to last. o $search - The value being searched for, otherwise known as the needle. An array may be used to designate multiple needles. o $replace - The replacement value that replaces found $search values. An array may be used to designate multiple replacements. o $subject - The string or array being searched and replaced on, otherwise known as the haystack. If $subject is an array, then the search and replace is performed with every entry of $subject, and the return value is an array as well. o $count - If passed, this will be set to the number of replacements performed. RETURN VALUES
Returns a string or an array of replacements. EXAMPLES
Example #1 str_ireplace(3) example <?php $bodytag = str_ireplace("%body%", "black", "<body text=%BODY%>"); ?> NOTES
Note This function is binary-safe. Caution Replacement order gotcha Because str_ireplace(3) replaces left to right, it might replace a previously inserted value when doing multiple replacements. Example #2 in the str_replace(3) documentation demonstrates how this may affect you in practice. SEE ALSO

ARRAY_REPLACE(3)							 1							  ARRAY_REPLACE(3)

array_replace - Replaces elements from passed arrays into the first array

array array_replace (array $array1, array $array2, [array $...]) DESCRIPTION
array_replace(3) replaces the values of $array1 with values having the same keys in each of the following arrays. If a key from the first array exists in the second array, its value will be replaced by the value from the second array. If the key exists in the second array, and not the first, it will be created in the first array. If a key only exists in the first array, it will be left as is. If several arrays are passed for replacement, they will be processed in order, the later arrays overwriting the previous values. array_replace(3) is not recursive : it will replace values in the first array by whatever type is in the second array. PARAMETERS
o $array1 - The array in which elements are replaced. o $array2 - The array from which elements will be extracted. o $... - More arrays from which elements will be extracted. Values from later arrays overwrite the previous values. RETURN VALUES
Returns an array, or NULL if an error occurs. EXAMPLES
Example #1 array_replace(3) example <?php $base = array("orange", "banana", "apple", "raspberry"); $replacements = array(0 => "pineapple", 4 => "cherry"); $replacements2 = array(0 => "grape"); $basket = array_replace($base, $replacements, $replacements2); print_r($basket); ?> The above example will output: Array ( [0] => grape [1] => banana [2] => apple [3] => raspberry [4] => cherry ) SEE ALSO
