|Well, I've been trying to right a script for this clan I'm working for (gaming clan) and they play Americas Army. What I am trying to do, is go onto aaotracker.com take the Hours of a user and convert it into a variable. Now, I've been around PHP a long time, but I still have issues with preg match. Thus, I have tried to find ways around it.|
Now, I want some help actually doing this... I don't care how it is done, as long as I end up with a number of their hours after $hours = ______
I have to use this number in some later scripts, which are really simple once I pull the hours. If you want to try out some preg_match/preg_match_all, here is the section of code I am trying to use.
<td><font face="Verdana,Arial" size="2"><b>Total time played:</b></font></td>
<td><font face="Verdana,Arial" size="2">2378.2 hours (1.5 hrs. per day)</font></td>
And of course, I would want a variable holding 2378.2 in it.
I did manage to find an XML file for a the clan wide. I have tried switches, but can't find a way to declare it a variable in the switch (I'll post it later) The XML file is here -> http://aaotracker.com/livefeed/xml_clanprofile.php?clanid=48882
And if it goes through XML, I would need Name, Tracker, Hours AND Honor set as variables.
This is the code I was trying to work with with the XML (my free little server doesn't let me use other URL's in fopen so I had to save a copy, but I should read the aaotracker xml file)
echo "Player ID: ";
echo "Name: ";
echo "Time: ";
echo "Honor: ";
echo "<br />";
die (sprintf("XML Error: %s at line %d",
Please Help, and tyia... This script has been driving me crazy and I think I officially give up on preg_match 0_o

|Did you read any RegEx tutorials? If not; go read one. If you still can't figure out how to do this, come back here and post what you've tried/where you're stuck.|
Oh, and you know you have to use cURL to grab what you need right? You'll probably want to do this:
cURL page X, grab page source.
Use RegEx to find some numbers in the source of page X.
Store found numbers in variables.
Do something with the found data.
