<?php
 
if(eregi("^[[:alnum:]]+$",$t1)) {
  printf("alnum<br>");
} else {
  printf("not alnum<br>");
}
 
?>

when invoked with $t1=<some string in cyrillic koi8-r encoding> (example - "????") and correct locale settings (see below) prints "not alnum"

while at the command line grep -E with the same input matches:

    -------
mbravo@tag-ltd:pages$ grep -E '[[:alnum:]]+'
????
????
    -------


PHP configured as -

You may want to use PCRE extension - it supports locale settings.
