What is the function in php to find a string which contains another string? I tried to find strcontain() function same as strlen(), but not available in php. Is there a method to find matching string or we need another methodology like regular expression to find it. I hope php should have some built in function to do this. Please post me sample ASAP.

you can use strops function to find a string in php.


$x = "Hi priya how are you";

Now you want to find the string priya from the above variable $x

then use something like below.

if (strpos($x,'priya') !== false) {
    echo 'true';

You could use an offset too:

// We can search for the character, ignoring anything before the offset
$newstring = 'abcdef abcdef';
$pos = strpos($newstring, 'a', 1); // $pos = 7, not 0
