ctype_xdigit

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.4, PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8)

ctype_xdigit Check for character(s) representing a hexadecimal digit

Description

ctype_xdigit(mixed $text): bool

Checks if all of the characters in the provided string, text, are hexadecimal 'digits'.

Parameters

text

The tested string.

Note:

If an int between -128 and 255 inclusive is provided, it is interpreted as the ASCII value of a single character (negative values have 256 added in order to allow characters in the Extended ASCII range). Any other integer is interpreted as a string containing the decimal digits of the integer.

Warning

As of PHP 8.1.0, passing a non-string argument is deprecated. In the future, the argument will be interpreted as a string instead of an ASCII codepoint. Depending on the intended behavior, the argument should either be cast to string or an explicit call to chr() should be made.

Return Values

Returns true if every character in text is a hexadecimal 'digit', that is a decimal digit or a character from [A-Fa-f] , false otherwise.

Examples

Example #1 A ctype_xdigit() example

<?php
$strings 
= array('AB10BC99''AR1012''ab12bc99');
foreach (
$strings as $testcase) {
    if (
ctype_xdigit($testcase)) {
        echo 
"The string $testcase consists of all hexadecimal digits.\n";
    } else {
        echo 
"The string $testcase does not consist of all hexadecimal digits.\n";
    }
}
?>

The above example will output:

The string AB10BC99 consists of all hexadecimal digits.
The string AR1012 does not consist of all hexadecimal digits.
The string ab12bc99 consists of all hexadecimal digits.
