String Replace Exp is a tag based approach to PHP’s str_replace for ExpressionEngine 2

Sometimes you need to use PHP functions but don’t want to enable PHP in the template. This plugin allows you to use the PHP string replace function in an EE tag passing the pattern, replacement, and string as parameters.
With this plugin you can pass EE variables to the tag which will process them and return the string with the replaced text.
    This example replaces spaces in a string with a dash
    if the var is {title} use this in it’s place
    {exp:strrexp pattern=” ” replace=”-” string=”{title}” }

Simple and handy. One correction, usage is {exp:strexp not {exp:strrexp.
