    Here is the problem that gives me a major headace, it should be simple but for me it seems impossible.

    Problem:
    I have a couple of tousand urls in this format:
    http://112db.com/forum/ index.php?action=register

    I want the URLs in this format Just removing the spaces):
    http://112db.com/forum/index.php?action=register


    Ofcourse I can do it manually but it would take days for my URLs.

    So I am asking if you guys know a easy way to fix this?

    dude, load the urls in word/wordpad/ even freaking notepad or whatever text editor you have

    hit that "replace" option up and just replace "forum/ index.php" with "forum/index.php"


    easy, right ?

    Just use the ' trim () ' function

    PHP:
    <?php 

    // The original text string with whitespace at the end

     
    $textString "This is some text with a space after it ";  

    // Remove the whitespace

     
    $trimmedTextString trim($textString); 
     
    // Display the new text string 

    echo $trimmedTextString;  

    ?>


    All you have to do is drop your list into a database, change the variables as the resulting domain and have it echo the entire list. Then, simply copy that list. Will take about 10 minutes to setup and complete.
