I know the function nl2br() which is convert newline to <br>, which newline stand for '\n' here.

Now I want to convert every 'Enter' I press here in this textarea into <br> after I submit, and then write them into a file or db something. How can I perform this conversion?

Use this:

Code: Select all

$yourstring = str_replace("\r\n","<br />",$yourstring);

It should do the trick... ;)

$yourstring = ereg_replace("\n","<br />",$yourstring);
