String's strpos function in PHP
Sometimes we need to find the position of a sub string or character in string.
The syntax of the strpos is given below :
strpos(string in which you search, sub string/character)
The strpos returns the position of the first match and if no match is found, it will return FALSE.
<?php echo strpos("Devmanuals","m"); ?>
As you can see output is not 4 instead of 3, because the counting in string starts from 0, not from1.
Another Example :
<?php $alphaString = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvxyz"; // a-z alphabets $kPos = strpos($alphaString, "k"); echo "The position of k in our string is $kPos"; ?>
The position of k in our string is 10.
