    I want to find everything between a ^ and a / and then hold that in a variable to use elsewhere. Anyone throw me the expression for that?

    The expression would look like this:

    PHP:
    /\^(.*?)\//is
    The match between the ^ and / would be available in $1.

    Example in PHP:

    PHP:
            $haystack '^Here is the needle/';
            
    $needle preg_replace('/\^(.*?)\//is'"The Found Text is: $1"$haystack);
           
            echo 
    $needle;
    echo $needle will produce: "The Found Text is: Here is the needle"
