Description

Returns the length of the given string.

Parameters

string

The string being measured for length.

Version Description
5.3.0 Prior versions treated arrays as the string Array, thus returning a string length of 5 and emitting an E_NOTICE level error.

Examples

Example #1 A strlen() example

<?php
$str 
'abcdef';
echo 
strlen($str); // 6

$str ' ab cd ';
echo 
strlen($str); // 7
?>

Notes

Note:

strlen() returns the number of bytes rather than the number of characters in a string.

Note:

strlen() returns NULL when executed on arrays, and an E_WARNING level error is emitted.
