(PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7)
strrchr — Find the last occurrence of a character in a string
strrchr ( string $haystack , string $needle ) : string|false
This function returns the portion of
haystack which starts at the last occurrence of
needle and goes until the end of
The string to search in
needle contains more than one character, only the first is used. This behavior is different from that of strstr().
Prior to PHP 8.0.0, if
needle is not a string, it is converted to an integer and applied as the ordinal value of a character. This behavior is deprecated as of PHP 7.3.0, and relying on it is highly discouraged. Depending on the intended behavior, the
needle should either be explicitly cast to string, or an explicit call to chr() should be performed.
This function returns the portion of string, or
needle is not found.
|8.0.0|| Passing an int as |

Example #1 strrchr() example
<?php // get last directory in $PATH $dir = substr(strrchr($PATH, ":"), 1); // get everything after last newline $text = "Line 1\nLine 2\nLine 3"; $last = substr(strrchr($text, 10), 1 ); ?>
Note: This function is binary-safe.
