  • Last Updated : 27 Aug, 2019

The IntlChar::forDigit() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to determines the character representation for a specific digit in the specified radix.

Syntax:

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

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

  • $digit: It is a required parameter. It is a number to convert to a character.
  • $radix: It is optional parameter. Its default value is 10.

Return Value: It returns the character representation of specified digit in the specified 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.
  • In Digit Case: digit < 10, then sum of '0' + digit is returned, otherwise 'a' + digit -10 is returned.
