strripos

(PHP 5, PHP 7)

strriposFind the position of the last occurrence of a case-insensitive substring in a string

Description

strripos ( string $haystack , mixed $needle [, int $offset = 0 ] ) : int

Find the numeric position of the last occurrence of needle in the haystack string.

Unlike the strrpos(), strripos() is case-insensitive.

Parameters

haystack

The string to search in.

needle

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.

offset

If zero or positive, the search is performed left to right skipping the first offset bytes of the haystack.

If negative, the search is performed right to left skipping the last offset bytes of the haystack and searching for the first occurrence of needle.

Note:

This is effectively looking for the last occurrence of needle before the last offset bytes.

Return Values

Returns the position where the needle exists relative to the beginnning of the haystack string (independent of search direction or offset).

Note: String positions start at 0, and not 1.

Returns FALSE if the needle was not found.

Warning

This function may return Boolean FALSE, but may also return a non-Boolean value which evaluates to FALSE. Please read the section on Booleans for more information. Use the === operator for testing the return value of this function.

Examples

Example #1 A simple strripos() example

<?php
$haystack 
'ababcd';
$needle   'aB';

$pos      strripos($haystack$needle);

if (
$pos === false) {
    echo 
"Sorry, we did not find ($needle) in ($haystack)";
} else {
    echo 
"Congratulations!\n";
    echo 
"We found the last ($needle) in ($haystack) at position ($pos)";
}
?>

The above example will output:

   Congratulations!
   We found the last (aB) in (ababcd) at position (2)
