Pattern Matching

P: 1

i am pretty new to mysql, sorry if the question is to dum.

how can i search " <a href="*********"> " and delete it?
every * is a number or a character.

i found this on the internet:
UPDATE wp_posts SET `post_content`
= REPLACE (`post_content`,
' ');

but it can be used only for exactly matches.
