Trim problem

Discussion in 'PHP' started by archard, Sep 30, 2007.

    I told PHP to trim the word "Tabs" out of a variable using this code:
    SEMrush
    
    trim($name, "Tabs")
    
    PHP:
    $name is always a multiple word string with the word "Tabs" at the end. But now, whenever the output starts with a capital T, the T gets trimmed as well as the word "Tabs". Any idea why?

    trim is used to get rid of whitespace
    Just look...
    ca3.php.net/trim

    if you want to get rid of the word tab from a string, such as "3232323effef tab ffsdfsdfsfs"

    than use
    $bodytag = str_replace("tab", "replacementoftabhere", "dcadscadcctab22cdsc");

    than just do this
    $b = str_replace("tab", "", "dcadscadcctab22cdsc");
