Strip everything in string after the second "-" character that occurs?

How can i strip everything in a string after the character "-" has occurred for the second time?

For example: Today is - Friday and tomorrow is - Saturday

In this case i would want Saturday to be removed along with the last - so somehow strip : "- Saturday"

Any help is very much appreciated :) I can only seem to get everything to be removed after the first "-".


Use strpos to find the first occurrence and use it again to find the point to end using the offset option with the value from previous. Then use substr.

$newstr = substr($str, 0, strpos($str, '-', strpos($str, '-')+1));
