Replace all special character from a string

Here is a function which will replace all special character from a string.

We can write a regx to check all character number ,space and – , and we can replace everything with –

[^A-Za-z0-9\- ]

Below is sample for how to replace all special character from a string using regx

$variable = "word";
preg_replace('/[^A-Za-z0-9\- ]/', '-', $variable);

Hope it will help some one
