strrchr

Find the last occurrence of a character in a string (PHP 4, PHP 5)
string strrchr ( string haystack, string needle )

This function returns the portion of haystack which starts at the last occurrence of needle and goes until the end of haystack.

Parameters

haystack
needle

If needle contains more than one character, only the first is used. This behavior is different from that of strchr().

If needle is not a string, it is converted to an integer and applied as the ordinal value of a character.

Return Values

This function returns the portion of string, or FALSE if needle is not found.
