PureBasic – strip_tags() just like in PHP!

Let the strippin’ begin!

This is a basic implementation of PHP’s strip_tags() for PureBasic, it’s not fully optimized but it’s fast enough for most applications. It doesn’t use native string manipulation functions, instead it parses through each character of the string.

Naturally it’s going to be faster than using REGEXP, but not as flexible. Lots of room for improvement, but for now it is what it is!

Simple use example:

Got any ideas on how to improve this?, let me know!

Enjoy,
