PHP - parse current URL

I need to parse the current url so that, in either of these cases:

http://mydomain.com/abc/
http://www.mydomain.com/abc/


I can get the return value of "abc" (or whatever text is in that position). How can I do that?

Answer

You can use parse_url();

$url = 'http://www.mydomain.com/abc/';

print_r(parse_url($url));

echo parse_url($url, PHP_URL_PATH);

which would give you

Array
(
    [scheme] => http
    [host] => www.mydomain.com
    [path] => /abc/
)
/abc/

Update: to get current page url and then parse it:

function curPageURL() {
 $pageURL = 'http';
 if ($_SERVER["HTTPS"] == "on") {$pageURL .= "s";}
 $pageURL .= "://";
 if ($_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"] != "80") {
  $pageURL .= $_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"].":".$_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"].$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"];
 } else {
  $pageURL .= $_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"].$_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"];
 }
 return $pageURL;
}

print_r(parse_url(curPageURL()));

echo parse_url($url, PHP_URL_PATH);
