Hi there,

I have a var which will be something like:

"./xml/filename.xml"

I need a way of later cutting down this the "./xml/" from this var so it is simply:
"filename.xml"

Is this possible?

Thanks

Well, you could use the str_replace function in php.



$remove = './xml/';
$filename = './xml/filename.xml';
$newfilename = trim(str_replace($remove,' ', $filename));

If all values of your variable is a valid file path, you can just use basename


echo basename('./xml/filename.xml'); //should return filename.xml
