How to get the last dir from a path in a string

I am trying to get the last folder name from a path that i store in a string.

e.g:

Home/new_folder/test


result = test

acm acm
Answer

Use basename

basename ( 'Home/new_folder/test' );
// output: test

As a side note to those who answered explode:

To get the trailing name component of a path you should use basename! In case your path is something like $str = "this/is/something/" the end(explode($str)); combo will fail.
