One of the things I like about PHP, is if you think of something that you
need like this, someone else has already thought about it and provided a
function to do it.  Try;

Subject: [PHP] Getting just the filename


Is there a simple way of getting just the filename from strings which give 
the filename along with the path.

For example, I need "test.txt" from "c:\myfiles\test.txt"
It should also work with the / character, in other words, give "test.txt" 
from "/htdocs/myfiles/test.txt"
