strcoll

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.5, PHP 5)

strcollLocale based string comparison

Description

int strcoll ( string $str1 , string $str2 )

Note that this comparison is case sensitive, and unlike strcmp() this function is not binary safe.

strcoll() uses the current locale for doing the comparisons. If the current locale is C or POSIX, this function is equivalent to strcmp().

Parameters

str1

The first string.

str2

The second string.

Return Values

Returns < 0 if str1 is less than str2; > 0 if str1 is greater than str2, and 0 if they are equal.

Changelog
