stripos --  Find position of first occurrence of a case-insensitive string


int stripos ( string haystack, string needle [, int offset])

Returns the numeric position of the first occurrence of needle in the haystack string. Unlike strpos(), stripos() is case-insensitive.

Note that the needle may be a string of one or more characters.

If needle is not found, stripos() will return boolean FALSE.


Questa funzione puņ restituire il Booleano FALSE, ma puņ anche restituire un valore non-Booleano valutato come FALSE, come ad esempio 0 o "". Per favore fare riferimento alla sezione Booleans per maggiori informazioni. Usare l'operatore === per controllare il valore restituito da questa funzione.

Esempio 1. stripos() examples

= 'a';
$mystring1 = 'xyz';
$mystring2 = 'ABC';

$pos1 = stripos($mystring1, $findme);
$pos2 = stripos($mystring2, $findme);

// Nope, 'a' is certainly not in 'xyz'
if ($pos1 === false) {
"The string '$findme' was not found in the string '$mystring1'";

// Note our use of ===.  Simply == would not work as expected
// because the position of 'a' is the 0th (first) character.
if ($pos2 !== false) {
"We found '$findme' in '$mystring2' at position $pos2";

If needle is not a string, it is converted to an integer and applied as the ordinal value of a character.

The optional offset parameter allows you to specify which character in haystack to start searching. The position returned is still relative to the the beginning of haystack.
