rtrim

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

rtrimRetira los espacios en blanco (u otros caracteres) del final de un string

Descripción

string rtrim ( string $str [, string $character_mask ] )

Esta función devuelve un string con los espacios en blanco retirados del final de str.

Sin el segundo parámetro, rtrim() retirará estos caracteres:

  • " " (ASCII 32 (0x20)), un espacio ordinario.
  • "\t" (ASCII 9 (0x09)), un tabulador.
  • "\n" (ASCII 10 (0x0A)), una nueva línea (line feed).
  • "\r" (ASCII 13 (0x0D)), un retorno de carro.
  • "\0" (ASCII 0 (0x00)), el byte NULL.
  • "\x0B" (ASCII 11 (0x0B)), un tabulador vertical.

Parámetros

str

El string de entrada.

character_mask

Se puede también especificar los caracteres que se desean retirar por medio del parámetro character_mask. Simplemente se listan todos los caracteres que se quieren retirar. Con .. se puede especificar un rango de caracteres.

Valores devueltos

Devuelve el string modificado.

Ejemplos

Ejemplo #1 Ejemplo de uso de rtrim()

<?php

$text 
"\t\tThese are a few words :) ...  ";
$binary "\x09Example string\x0A";
$hello  "Hello World";
var_dump($text$binary$hello);

print 
"\n";

$trimmed rtrim($text);
var_dump($trimmed);

$trimmed rtrim($text" \t.");
var_dump($trimmed);

$trimmed rtrim($hello"Hdle");
var_dump($trimmed);

// retira los caracteres ASCII de control al inicio de $binary
// (de 0 a 31 inclusive)
$clean rtrim($binary"\x00..\x1F");
var_dump($clean);

?>

El resultado del ejemplo sería:

string(32) "        These are a few words :) ...  "
string(16) "    Example string
"
string(11) "Hello World"

string(30) "        These are a few words :) ..."
string(26) "        These are a few words :)"
string(9) "Hello Wor"
string(15) "    Example string"

I have an obsessive love for php's array functions given how extremely easy they've made complex string handling for me in various situations... so, have another string-rtrim() variant:

<?php

function strrtrim($message, $strip) {
   
// break message apart by strip string
   
$lines = explode($strip, $message);
   
$last  = '';
   
// pop off empty strings at the end
   
do {
       
$last = array_pop($lines);
    } while (empty(
$last) && (count($lines)));
   
// re-assemble what remains
   
return implode($strip, array_merge($lines, array($last)));
}

?>

Astonishingly, something I didn't expect, but: It completely compares to harmor's rstrtrim below, execution time wise. o_o Whee!

True, the Perl chomp() will only trim newline characters. There is, however, the Perl chop() function which is pretty much identical to the PHP rtrim()

---

Here's a quick way to recursively trim every element of an array, useful after the file() function :

<?php
# Reads /etc/passwd file an trims newlines on each entry
$aFileContent = file("/etc/passwd");
foreach (
$aFileContent as $sKey => $sValue) {
   
$aFileContent[$sKey] = rtrim($sValue);
}

print_r($aFileContent);
?>

On the recurring subject of string-stripping instead of character-stripping rtrim() implementations... the simplest (with a caveat) is probably the basename() function. It has a second parameter that functions as a right-trim using whole strings:

<?php

echo basename('MooFoo', 'Foo');

?>

...outputs 'Moo'.

Since it also strips anything that looks like a directory, it's not quite identical with hacking a string off the end:

<?php

echo basename('Zoo/MooFoo', 'Foo');

?>

...still outputs 'Moo'.

But sometimes it gets the job done.

$text1 = rtrim($text, 'a..z');
$text1 = rtrim($text1, '.');
echo
$text1; // only the '.' is trimmed.
$text2 = rtrim($text, 'a..z.');
echo
$text2; // The whole last word is trimmed.

I needed a way to trim all white space and then a few chosen strings from the end of a string.  So I wrote this class to reuse when stuff needs to be trimmed. 

<?php

class cleaner {

function
cleaner ($cuts,$pinfo) {
$ucut = "0";
$lcut = "0";
while (
$cuts[$ucut]) {
$lcut++;
$ucut++;
}
$lcut = $lcut - 1;
$ucut = "0";
$rcut = "0";
$wiy = "start";

while (
$wiy) {

if (
$so) {
$ucut = "0";
$rcut = "0";
unset(
$so);
}

if (!
$cuts[$ucut]) {
$so = "restart";
} else {
$pinfo = rtrim($pinfo);
$bpinfol = strlen($pinfo);
$tcut = $cuts[$ucut];
$pinfo = rtrim($pinfo,"$tcut");
$pinfol = strlen($pinfo);

    if (
$bpinfol == $pinfol) {
   
$rcut++;
    if (
$rcut == $lcut) {
    unset(
$wiy);
    }
   
$ucut++;
    } else {
   
$so = "restart";
    }
}
}

$this->cleaner = $pinfo;
}

}

$pinfo = "Well... I'm really bored...<br /><br>&nbsp;    \n\t&nbsp;<br><br /><br>&nbsp;    \r\r&nbsp;<br>\r<br /><br>\r&nbsp;    &nbsp;\n<br>      <br />\t";

$cuts = array('\n','\r','\t',' ',' ','&nbsp;','<br />','<br>','<br/>');

$pinfo = new cleaner($cuts,$pinfo);
$pinfo = $pinfo->cleaner;

print
$pinfo;

?>

That class will take any string that you put in the $cust array and remove it from the end of the $pinfo string.  It's useful for cleaning up comments, articles, or mail that users post to your site, making it so there's no extra blank space or blank lines.

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.
<?php
 
// 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 '

The simplest way to strip a newline form a text file is ltrim();

trim or explode or split ("\n" or "\r\n") doesn't work in all cases, so give ltrim(); a try instead.

I'm sure there's a better way to strip strings from the end of strings.

<?php
/**
* Strip a string from the end of a string
*
* @param string $str      the input string
* @param string $remove   OPTIONAL string to remove

* @return string the modified string
  */
function rstrtrim($str, $remove=null)
{
   
$str    = (string)$str;
   
$remove = (string)$remove;   
   
    if(empty(
$remove))
    {
        return
rtrim($str);
    }
   
   
$len = strlen($remove);
   
$offset = strlen($str)-$len;
    while(
$offset > 0 && $offset == strpos($str, $remove, $offset))
    {
       
$str = substr($str, 0, $offset);
       
$offset = strlen($str)-$len;
    }
   
    return
rtrim($str);   
   
}
//End of function rstrtrim($str, $remove=null)

echo rstrtrim('Hello World!!!', '!')   .'<br />'; //"Hello World"
echo rstrtrim('Hello World!!!', '!!')  .'<br />'; //"Hello World!"
echo rstrtrim('Hello World!!!', '!!!') .'<br />'; //"Hello World"
echo rstrtrim('Hello World!!!', '!!!!').'<br />'; //"Hello World!!!"

To remove an unwanted character - example "." - if exist or not.

The example above doesn't include the case where there is no "."
If there is not "." at the example above the last word will be deleted.

Have fun with this code.

<?php
$text
= "This string contains. some unwanted characters on the end .";
$text = trim($text);
$last = $text{strlen($text)-1};
if (!
strcmp($last,"."))
{
 
$text = rtrim($text, 'a..z');
 
$text = rtrim($text, '.');
}
?>

Function similar to rtrim only this will truncate the string at the 1st occurence of any character from $charlist

<?php

function rstrip($string, $charlist = "\t ") {
   
// removes everything from first occurence of char in charlist to end of string

   
$charlist = str_split($charlist);
   
$pos = strlen($string);

    foreach (
$charlist as $char) {
       
$pos = min(strpos($string, $char), $pos);
    }

   
$string_stripped = substr($string, 0, $pos);

    return
$string_stripped;
}
