Remove extra whitespace from the beginning PHP?

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

If you want to remove extra whitespace from the beginning, use ltrim() in PHP. Let’s say the following is our variable −

$value="  Hello, welcome to PHP Tutorial  ";

We want the output with no whitespace on the left −

Hello, welcome to PHP Tutorial


 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
   $value="  Hello, welcome to PHP Tutorial  ";
   print_r( "The actual value is=".$value."<br>");
   echo "The actual length is=",strlen($value)."<br>";
   echo "After removing extra whitespace from beginning=",strlen($modifiedValue)."<br>";
   echo "The result is=".$modifiedValue;


This will produce the following output

The actual value is= Hello, welcome to PHP Tutorial
The actual length is=34
After removing extra whitespace from beginning=32
The result is=Hello, welcome to PHP Tutorial
