Hi I am new to using PHP but have some experience of using ASP.

I want to be able to use PHP to carry out a task similar to ASP's replace function that will look at a string in a variable and replace the first instance it finds of it.

for example say my variable string is "t_image.jpg"

I would use (replace(<%imagestring&>)value,"t_","",1,1) which would change the string to now just being "image.jpg"

Is there a similiar function to this in PHP that will carry out the same task.

Thanks for your help.. ;D

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
