Getting the last character of a string with PHP is pretty simple, all you need is one line of code and your string to be deployed.
Let’s take a demo string such as ‘This is my string!’
We need to catch the last character from the string which of course will be the exclamation point.
For this task,
substr() Is the perfect function.
$string = "This is my string!"; $lastChar = substr($string, -1); echo $lastChar; // outputs !
So h substr () The function gets a string and some numeric parameters to ensure that the correct parts of the string are deleted.
In this case we use the string parameter which is our string and the second parameter as -1 (offset), says
substr() To start at the end of the string and take the last character.
See documentation on substr () Function for more complex examples.
