getting part of a string - PHP Development

Anyone have a sure way of grabbing just the file name from a string that looks like this: C:/Doents and Settings/Bobo the Bugbear/My Doents/My Pictures/1.gif I would like to pull off, just the name "1.gif" or even better just "1" without the extension. I've been working on: $filevalue = str_replace("\\", "/", $filevalue); $parts = explode("/",$filevalue); $file_name = $parts[count($parts)]; but with no luck. thanks...

    Default getting part of a string

    Anyone have a sure way of grabbing just the file name from a string that
    looks like this:

    C:/Doents and Settings/Bobo the Bugbear/My Doents/My Pictures/1.gif

    I would like to pull off, just the name "1.gif" or even better just "1"
    without the extension.

    I've been working on:

    $filevalue = str_replace("\\\\", "/", $filevalue);

    $parts = explode("/",$filevalue);
    $file_name = $parts[count($parts)];

    but with no luck.

    thanks

    Default Re: getting part of a string

    try basename(). then just cut the extention with substr($string, 0, -4) (-4
    if the extention is 4 characters i.e. .gif)
