strpbrk --  Search a string for any of a set of characters


string strpbrk ( string haystack, string char_list )

strpbrk() searches the haystack string for a char_list, and returns a string starting from the character found (or FALSE if it is not found).

Note: The char_list parameter is case sensitive.

Example 1. strpbrk() example


$text = 'This is a Simple text.';

// this echoes "is is a Simple text." because 'i' is matched first
echo strpbrk($text, 'mi');

// this echoes "Simple text." because chars are case sensitive
echo strpbrk($text, 'S');
