(PHP 4, PHP 5)
basename — Returns filename component of path
Given a string containing a path to a file, this function will return the
base name of the file.
On Windows, both slash (/) and backslash
(\) are used as directory separator character. In
other environments, it is the forward slash (/).
If the filename ends in suffix
this will also
be cut off.
Returns the base name of the given path
Example #1 basename() example
<?php$path = "/home/httpd/html/index.php";$file = basename($path); // $file is set to "index.php"$file = basename($path, ".php"); // $file is set to "index"?>
