Get a filename from a string in PHP

I have this strings saved in my mysql database in format like:


Now, I need to get only the file name.

I guess I need some function in PHP that check the string from the backwards and get everything to the first slash.

How to write such thing?


You can use basename() this way

$filename = basename("/uploads/attachments/18/105/WordPress_3_Cookbook.pdf");
