Laravel 10 - How to Remove First and Last Character
Hello Artisan, today I'll show you how to remove first and last character from an string. Sometimes we ran into a situation where we need to remove some specific string from sentence or word. I'll show you two examples for that. So, let's see how we can easily remove a character from the string.
Note: Tested on Laravel 10.0
I'll show two example but I preferred this one most. Because in real life, I found it very useful and it's easy to useful too. Let's see the below code snippet.
$str = "Hello World!"; $str = substr($str, 1, -1); dd($str);
which'll generate the below output
In the 2nd example we'll use preg_replace() to achieve our expected result. Let's see the below code snippet.
$str = "Hello World!"; $str = preg_replace('/^.|.$/', '', $str); dd($str);
which'll generate the same output as step1
That's it for today. I hope this tutorial will helpful with the real life application. Thanks for reading. 🙂
