Answers
June 10, 2021

substr() is a built-in function in PHP and it returns the extracted part of the string.

Syntax

          substr(string_name, position, length);

  • string_name => name of the string, required parameter
  • position => start position, required parameter
  • length => string length to cut , optional parameter

Example

     <?php
        $rest = substr("restaurant", -1);    // returns "t"
        $rest = substr("restaurant", -2);    // returns "nt"
        $rest = substr("restaurant", -3, 1); // returns "a"
    ?>
