mb_strcut

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.6, PHP 5)

mb_strcutGet part of string

Description

string mb_strcut ( string $str , int $start [, int $length = NULL [, string $encoding = mb_internal_encoding() ]] )

mb_strcut() extracts a substring from a string similarly to mb_substr(), but operates on bytes instead of characters. If the cut position happens to be between two bytes of a multi-byte character, the cut is performed starting from the first byte of that character. This is also the difference to the substr() function, which would simply cut the string between the bytes and thus result in a malformed byte sequence.

Parameters

str

The string being cut.

start

Starting position in bytes.

length

Length in bytes. If omitted or NULL is passed, extract all bytes to the end of the string.

encoding

The encoding parameter is the character encoding. If it is omitted, the internal character encoding value will be used.

Return Values

mb_strcut() returns the portion of str specified by the start and length parameters.
