In PHP, what is the simplest way to return the portion of a string before the first occurrence of a specific character?
For example, if I have a string...
"The quick brown foxed jumped over the etc etc."
...and I am filtering for a space character (" "), the function would return
You could do this:
$string = 'The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog'; $substring = substr($string, 0, strpos($string, ' '));
But I like this better:
list($firstWord) = explode(' ', $string);
