  • Last Updated : 04 Nov, 2020

The IntlChar::isJavaIDStart() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to check whether the input character code point is permissible since the first character is a java identifier or not. It is True for characters with general category “Sc” (Currency Symbols), and “Pc” (Connecting Punctuation).

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter $codepoint which is mandatory. The input parameter $codepoint is a character or integer value, which is encoded as a UTF-8 string.

Return Value: Returns True, if $codepoint start with Java identifier character, otherwise return False.

Below programs illustrate the IntlChar::isJavaIDStart() function in PHP:



Program 1:  

PHP




<?php
// PHP function to illustrate the
// use of IntlChar::isJavaIDStart()
    
// Input string codepoint value with
// Capital and small letter
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart("R"));
 
// Input string codepoint value with small character
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart("r"));
 
// Input control character codepoint value
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart("\n"));
   
// Input string codepoint value
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart("Bug"));
    
// Input int codepoint value
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart("3 "));
  
// Input int char an identifier
// of codepoint value
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart("\u{007F}"));
   
// Input symbolic codepoint value
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart(" @ "));
var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart(" $ "));
  
?>

Output: 

bool(true)
bool(true)
bool(false)
NULL
NULL
bool(false)
NULL
NULL

Program 2:

PHP




<?php
// PHP function to illustrate the
// use of IntlChar::isJavaIDStart()
  
// Declare an array with
// different codepoint value
$arr = array("C",
             " ",
             "\n",
             " #",
             "\t",
             "Code",
        );
    
// For loop condition to check
// each character through function
foreach ($arr as $val) {
        
    // Check each element as code point data
    var_dump(IntlChar::isJavaIDStart($val));
}
?>

Output: 

bool(true)
bool(false)
