strrchrFind the last occurrence of a character in a string


string strrchr ( string $haystack , mixed $needle )

This function returns the portion of haystack which starts at the last occurrence of needle and goes until the end of haystack.



The string to search in


If needle contains more than one character, only the first is used. This behavior is different from that of strstr().

If needle is not a string, it is converted to an integer and applied as the ordinal value of a character.

Return Values

This function returns the portion of string, or FALSE if needle is not found.


Version Description
