PHP | IntlChar digit() function

The IntlChar::digit() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to get the decimal digit value of a code point for a given radix. This function returns the decimal digit value of the code point in the specified radix.

Syntax:

int IntlChar::digit( $codepoint, $radix )

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $codepoint: The value of $codepoint is an integer or character, which is encoded as a UTF-8 string.
  • $radix: It is optional parameter. Its default value is 10.

Return Value: This function returns the number represented by the character in the given radix, or False if there is no value or if the value exceeds the radix.

Note: Valid and invalid function argument:

  • If both $radix or $digit is not valid then return NULL.
  • The $radix argument is valid if its value lies between $radix >= 2 and $radix <= 36.
  • The digit is valid if its value is 0 <= digit < radix.
  • The character has a decimal digit value. This characters comes under general category Nd(decimal digit numbers) and a Numeric_Type of Decimal.
  • The character is uppercase Latin letters in between ‘A’ to ‘Z’. Then the value of character is c-‘A’+10.
  • The character is lowercase Latin letters in between ‘a’ to ‘z’. Then the value of character is ch-‘a’+10.
  • Latin letters from both the ASCII range (0061..007A, 0041..005A) as well as from the Full width ASCII range (FF41..FF5A, FF21..FF3A) are recognized.
