Examples

Example #1 basename() example

<?php
echo "1) ".basename("/etc/sudoers.d"".d").PHP_EOL;
echo 
"2) ".basename("/etc/passwd").PHP_EOL;
echo 
"3) ".basename("/etc/").PHP_EOL;
echo 
"4) ".basename(".").PHP_EOL;
echo 
"5) ".basename("/");
?>

The above example will output:

 1) sudoers 2) passwd 3) etc 4) . 5) 

Notes

Note:

basename() operates naively on the input string, and is not aware of the actual filesystem, or path components such as "..".

Note:

basename() is locale aware, so for it to see the correct basename with multibyte character paths, the matching locale must be set using the setlocale() function.
