PHP addcslashes()

PHP addcslashes() function is used to add backslash before any specified characters in a given string.PHP addcslashes() function is a build-in function of PHP. The addcslashes() function accepts 2 parameters.

Syntax:

string addcslashes($string, $characters)

In the first parameter $string we pass the given input string in which we have to add the backslash before any specific character. In the second parameter $characters we pass that specific character Before which we want to add the backslash. In this parameter either we can pass a single charater value or a sequence of characters. The character which we will pass in this parameter should exist in the string otherwise it will be unable to insert the backslash.

$str = addcslashes("PHPTPOINT","O");
echo($str); 
?>
</body>
</html>

<html>
<body>
<?php
$str ="PHP is a server side scripting language";
echo addcslashes($str,'ie')."<br>";
echo addcslashes($str,'a')."<br>";
?>
</body>
</html>
Output:
PHP /is a s/erv/er s/id/e scr/ipt/ing languag/e
PHP is /a server side scripting l/angu/age
