PHP String functions for Length, Compare, Replace, Find, Uppercase, Lowercase, Search, Reverse

PHP String Functions

PHP String Functions are to manipulate the string. String Length, String Comparison, String Compare, String Replace, String Find, String Uppercase, String Lowercase, String Search are some string functions in PHP.

PHP String Length

String Length Function or strlen()is used to get the length of a string.

Example 1 – PHP String Length Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>

  <body>
	<?php
		$x = "Have a nice day.";

</html>

In the above examples, we create a string variable $x and use the strlen() function to get the length of the string variable.

To Get The Number of Word In a String Functions

str_word_count() function is used to get the number of words in a string.

Example 2 – String Word Count Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
   
  </head>
    
  <body>
	<?php
		$x = "Have a nice day.";
		echo "The number of words in a string are...".str_word_count($x);
	?>
  </body>
</html>

In the above examples, we create a string variable $x and use the str_word_count() function to get the numbers of words in the string variable.

PHP String Reverse

String Reverse Function or strrev() is used to get the string in a reverse order.

Example 3 – String Reverse Example Code

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
   
  </head>
    
  <body>
	<?php
		$x = "Have a nice day.";
		echo "The reverse string of (Have a nice day.) is - ".strrev($x);
	?>
  </body>
</html>

In the above examples, we create a string variable $x and use the strrev() function to get the reverse string of that string variable.

PHP String Find or Search Function Syntax and Code Example

PHP String Find or strpos() is used to find or search a text in a string.

Example 4 – String Search or Find Code

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>

  <body>
	<?php
		$x = "Have a nice day.";
		echo "Nice text is available at the number is....".strpos($x, "nice");
	?>
  </body>
</html>

In the above examples, we have to find the text, here the function strpos() shows on which position that text will appear.

Example 5 – PHP String Replace Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>

Example 6 – String Uppercase Convert Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
   
  </head>
    
  <body>
	<?php
		$x = "Have a nice day.";
		echo "The Uppercase of Have a nice day. is... ".Strtoupper($x);

Example 7 – String Lowercase Convert Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
   
  </head>
    
  <body>
	<?php

PHP String Compare or Comparison

String Compare Function or strcmp() is used to get comparison between the strings.

It will compare the 2 strings based on the alphabetical order, for example, an alphabet is considered as a number and the function subtract the two numbers. If the strings are same the function will return zero(0) and if the strings are not the same the function will return negative or positive number based on the difference of the length or alphabetical order.

Example 8 – String Compare Example

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
   
  </head>
    
  <body>
	<?php
		$x = "Have a good day.";
		$y = "Have a nice day.";
		echo strcmp($x, $y);
		
		echo "<br />";
		
		$a = "Elex Tutorial.";
		$b = "CSS Tutorial.";
		echo strcmp($a, $b);
		
		echo "<br />";
		
		$p = "Welcome to the technical world.";
		$q = "Welcome to the technology world.";
		echo strcmp($p, $q);
		
		echo "<br />";
		
		$r = "Hello world";
		$s = "Hello worldsss";
		echo strcmp($r, $s);
