There are a couple of ways you could do this. The most straightforward way would be to use the pathinfo() function. <?php $file = 'word_document.docx'; $extension = pathinfo($file, PATHINFO_EXTENSION); $name = pathinfo($file, PATHINFO_FILENAME); ?> See http://php.net/pathinfo for more information about that function. You could also explode() it and do something with that, or you could or use some of the other many string manipulation functions. I think pathinfo() is easiest. -- Daniel Egeberg -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
