Description

int mb_strpos ( string $haystack , string $needle [, int $offset = 0 [, string $encoding = mb_internal_encoding() ]] )

Finds position of the first occurrence of a string in a string.

Performs a multi-byte safe strpos() operation based on number of characters. The first character's position is 0, the second character position is 1, and so on.

needle

The string to find in haystack. In contrast with strpos(), numeric values are not applied as the ordinal value of a character.

offset

The search offset. If it is not specified, 0 is used.

encoding

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

Return Values

Returns the numeric position of the first occurrence of needle in the haystack string. If needle is not found, it returns FALSE.
