[PHP] Capturing part of regex search




I've been looking at the regex functions. Either it's a lack of caffeine or
it's right in front of my nose, but how do I put part of a regex find into
a variable? Plus I suck at regex.

e.g.

I'm interested in capturing the names of people who are found in text
surrounded by the following format:

"John Doe":/cr/johndoe/ or "Jane Smith":/cr/janesmith/

I'd want to place John Doe or Jane Smith into the variable. The search will
always be for "name":/cr/nameurl/

What regex and php function would I use? Thanks for any pointers. One of
these days I'll master regex.
