Here is my problem, I am running an article directory I want to do several thing.
1)The text of the articles contain none alphanumeric characters and also undesirable html tag. The text are in a MySQL database field. I want your script to examine every article and allow only alphanumeric characters as well as common characters such as ï¿½?ï¿½, ï¿½\ï¿½, ï¿½%ï¿½, etc and some define html tags. So your script will read the text in its current field and write the corrected text in an new field. There is a lots of article the script should be made as not to time out.
2)I want to take an article and create a summary (to be input in a predefine field). The summary will contain only alphanumerical character and common characters such as ï¿½?ï¿½, ï¿½\ï¿½, ï¿½%ï¿½, etc and will contain no html tags. Only the first 255 allow characters will be part of the summary.
