Displaying Dollar Sign in WAP, served with PHP

3 New Member
Im wanting to display a dollar sign on my wap application, which requires that the cell phone is served with [HTML]$$[/HTML] to display [HTML]$[/HTML].

Therefor I'm trying to find an easy way, in my php code, that will always add a dollar sign next to any existing dollar sign. so that dollar signs are always served in pairs

The content is residing in a MySQL database.

Thanks for any help that can be offered.

use the str_replace function
somthing like

$string = 'asdf%asdf%asdf ';
$find = '%';
$replace = '%%';
$newstring = str_replace($fi nd, $replace, $string);
//$newstring should be asdf%%asdf%%asd f
you will probably need to slash out some of the special characters with a '\'.

if i misunderstood your question please repost and clarify or if my answer was unclear then repost and i will clarify

We are considering switching to the dollar sign ($) for self, instead of the period ( . ) we are using now in Prothon. Ruby uses the at-sign (@) for self, but our new usage of self also includes replacing the period for some attribute references, as in obj$func() versus obj.func(), and too many programs treat that as an email address and screw it up. Also the S in the symbol $ reminds one of the S in $elf. Can people from outside the...

I need to be selecting records based on the value of a string-format currency value. Specifically, I have a table with a field of type varchar(50).

For instance: $1,234.56. One restriction I have to live with is that I can't change the schema of the table or...
