[int$type = GRAPHEME_EXTR_COUNT],
[int$offset = 0],
Function to extract a sequence of default grapheme clusters from a text buffer, which must be encoded in UTF-8.
String to search.
Maximum number items - based on the $extract_type - to return.
Defines the type of units referred to by the $size parameter:
GRAPHEME_EXTR_COUNT (default) - $size is the number of default grapheme clusters to extract. GRAPHEME_EXTR_MAXBYTES - $size is the maximum number of bytes returned. GRAPHEME_EXTR_MAXCHARS - $size is the maximum number of UTF-8 characters returned.
Starting position in $haystack in bytes - if given, it must be zero or a positive value that is less than or equal to the length of $haystack in bytes, or a negative value that counts from the end of $haystack. If $start does not point to the first byte of a UTF-8 character, the start position is moved to the next character boundary.
Reference to a value that will be set to the next starting position. When the call returns, this may point to the first byte position past the end of the string.
A string starting at offset $start and ending on a default grapheme cluster boundary that conforms to the $size and $extract_type specified, or false on failure.
|7.1.0||Support for negative offsets has been added.|
