Check if a string begins with another string


 / Published in: PHP
 

The counterpart of this snippet: http://snipplr.com/view/13213/check-if-a-string-ends-with-another-string/

This one checks if a strings begins with another string. Again, third paramter is optional, if you don't set it, the comparison will be case-sensitive.

  1. function startsWith($haystack,$needle,$case=true) {
  2. if($case){return (strcmp(substr($haystack, 0, strlen($needle)),$needle)===0);}
  3. return (strcasecmp(substr($haystack, 0, strlen($needle)),$needle)===0);
  4. }
