php – rtrim function

Hi, php rtrim function is very similar to chop function

Strip whitespace (or other characters) from the end of a string

example code:
<?php // php code start tag
$text=”test “; // assigning “test ” to variable $text with a space tag at the end “test ”
print rtrim($text); // now we are printing data on page with rtrim function
// output on the screen will be “text” rtrim function remove that space from the end and return that value to print function and print function will display that out put on page
?>//php end code tag
Basically this function is used to remove spaces from the right side just like chop function.

Example rtrim:
This shows how rtrim works when using the optional charlist parameter:
rtrim reads a character, one at a time, from the optional charlist parameter and compares it to the end of the str string. If the characters match, it trims it off and starts over again, looking at the “new” last character in the str string and compares it to the first character in the charlist again. If the characters do not match, it moves to the next character in the charlist parameter comparing once again. It continues until the charlist parameter has been completely processed, one at a time, and the str string no longer contains any matches. The newly “rtrimmed” string is returned.
// Example 1:
rtrim(‘This is a short short sentence’, ‘short sentence’);
// returns ‘This is a’
// If you were expecting the result to be ‘This is a short ‘,
// then you’re wrong; the exact string, ‘short sentence’,
// isn’t matched.  Remember, character-by-character comparison!
// Example 2:
rtrim(‘This is a short short sentence’, ‘cents’);
// returns ‘This is a short short ‘
