Preserving Hard-Returns In A Bunch Of Text


Recommended Posts

I am trying to copy a bunch of text which consists of several different paragraphs (with empty space in between them).


Then I would like to paste this text into a form's textarea field.


When I submit the form I would like to clean the information with something like the preg_replace below.


$cleaned_info = preg_replace('#[^A-Za-z0-9)(,\'\.\-!?$" "" "]#i', '', $_POST['info']);


How do I preserve the empty lines between paragraphs (which I'm assuming are hard-returns or whatever)?


Adding \n to the things which I would like to preserve didn't work.
