Remove everything before ** in my string?

Discussion in 'PHP' started by Kerosene, Dec 20, 2007.

    $myvar will change, but will always have ** in it. I want to remove everything BEFORE and INCLUDING the **. How can I do this?

    $myvar = 'blablabla**keep_this';
    PHP:

    EDIT: ok i've worked it out, but I know I'm going the long way round... Can someone suggest something a little more elegant?

    $myvar = str_replace($myvardelete, '', $myvar);

    Is it always going to have a constant # of characters at the back? If so, there is an easier way.

    $myvar = 'any string even if it contains &#($*% any characters, even ** strange right (its called magic)**keep_this';
    echo end(explode('**',$myvar));

    ^^ Why stripos() when we're not looking for an alphabetical character? (Note that stripos() is slower than strpos())
