Is there PHP basename() equivalent in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

If given a string containing a path to a file, the PHP basename() function will return the base name of the file. To get its equivalent in MySQL, you can use SUBSTRING_INDEX(). Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> Location varchar(200)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (1.02 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('C:\\Web\\Sum.java');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('E:\\WebDevelopment\\Image1.png');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.42 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

Output

+------------------------------+
| Location                     |
+------------------------------+
| C:\Web\Sum.java              |
| E:\WebDevelopment\Image1.png |
+------------------------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Following is the query to work with the basename() equivalent in MySQL and get what the basename() function returns i.e. the base name of the file −

mysql> select Location,
   -> SUBSTRING_INDEX(Location,'\\', -1) AS NameOfFile from DemoTable;

Output

+------------------------------+------------+
| Location                     | NameOfFile |
+------------------------------+------------+
| C:\Web\Sum.java              | Sum.java   |
| E:\WebDevelopment\Image1.png | Image1.png |
+------------------------------+------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)
