mb_strcut -- Get part of string


string mb_strcut (string str, int start [, int length [, string encoding]])


This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change in a future release of PHP without notice. Be warned and use this function at your own risk.

mb_strcut() returns the portion of str specified by the start and length parameters.

mb_strcut() performs equivalent operation as mb_substr() with different method. If start position is multi-byte character's second byte or larger, it starts from first byte of multi-byte character.

It subtracts string from str that is shorter than length AND character that is not part of multi-byte string or not being middle of shift sequence.

encoding is character encoding. If it is not set, internal character encoding is used.
