pattern match gave different result depend on the given string.

Reproduce code:
eregi("<a href=\"(.*)\">","<a href=\"link1\">#someotherwords#link2\">",$link);

Expected result:

Actual result:
link1">#someotherwords#link2 but sometime link1, depends on the URL & words between it

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Your regexp isn\'t good enough, nothing to do with eregi.
