I'm not sure, if it's really an error or "feature" :). I would like to get $regs[10] value, but the output is always empty.

<script language="php">
$string = "1234567890";

ereg( "^(.)(.)(.)(.)(.)(.)(.)(.)(.)(.)", $string, $regs);

echo "Whole string: " . $regs[ 0 ] . "<br>";
for ( $i = 1; $i <= 10; $i++ )
{
	echo "<br>" . $i . " -> " . $regs[$i];
}
</script>

From the manual:
"If ereg() finds any matches at all, $regs will be filled with exactly ten elements, even though more or fewer than ten parenthesized substrings may actually have matched."
