Search for PHP array element containing string?

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Let’s say we have the following array 

$subject= array('JavaScript','Java','PHP language','Python Language');

From the above array, we need to fetch values with the following text 

$valueToSearch= 'Language';

For such match, use preg_match() in PHP.

Example

The PHP code is as follows

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<?php
$subject= array('JavaScript','Java','PHP language','Python Language');
$valueToSearch= 'Language';
$result = array();
foreach($subject as $t=>$value) {
   if(preg_match("/\b$valueToSearch\b/i", $value)){
      $result[$t] = $value;
   }
}
print_r($result);
?>
</body>
</html>

Output

This will produce the following output

Array ( [2] => PHP language [3] => Python Language )
